How Migrate CRM4 on  SQL 2005 32-bit to SQL 2008 64-bit?

I want to Migrate CRM4 from SQL 2005 32-bit to a SQL 2008 64-bit machine.

I made a backup of the old crmdatabe (_MSCRM.mdb, _MSCRMCONFIG.mdb and _ReportServer.mdb) with SQL management studio and exported customizations.

I am about to install CRM now on the new machine. Should I first simply restore the two MSCRM databases in SQL Management studio? Then install using an existing database? Or should I use the CRM4 import option later after installing with a default database? Should I use a redeployment tool (like with upgradng from CRM3) or some other tool or no tool?

Thanks. I tried that but then I get an error reporting missing OU (or department). I'm not sure but I think under CRM3 it was the redeployment tool that solved that by creating the necessary ou's before installing CRM with the existing database. Is there a tool for this in CRM4? I don't find it.

okie here

after installing crm

you need attach org_mscrm database to sql

when you go to deployment manager you have an option for import organization

click on that and select  the above data base org_mscrm

Do I have to start setting up CRM after installation (job roles etc) or does the import organisation wizard deal with that?

By the way where do I find the Deployment manager: inthe CRM program or on the CRM setup CD or in the menu that appears automatically on CD startup (there's something called ; data migratiebeheer (Dutch)?
