Setting up Active Directory for MS CRM

Hi All,

I'm going to install Microsoft CRM for an organization that is reluctant to give me domain admin rights or full rights to create AD objects.

Is there a list of the objects that I can provide to them to create manually and then just give me permissions on those objects moving forwards?  They'd like me to install MS CRM but without giving me anything above local admin rights and access to the AD objects after they're created.

TIA!

The CRM Installer need rights to create a specific set of objects in AD, these can't be created manually. however in the installer you can specify the AD Organisational Unit in which the objects must be created, so the organisation can just give you create rights on a specific OU that they can create for CRM. This should solve that problem.

I also believe that the user that is used during install must also belong to the same domain or it's parent domain in order to be able to access user accounts when defining your CMS users.
Maybe bmos or someone else could confirm this,

It appears that you can create them manually, as posted here in a Microsoft KB article:

As long as you are installing all the CRM components on the same server, then this should work fine.
