Can Dynamics GP, RMS, CRM and SQL SERVER be moved to another server...
Posted on 2010-04-02
We have a windows server 2008 32bit with 8 GB memory. Had to use 32bit as it was installed on the server previously. Unfortunately can only use 4GB memory due to 32 bit OS.
We have the following software installed.
SQL Server 2008
We have 3 harddrives configured to work separately like they would sit on a desktop and not configured as Array of disks.
We would like to move the above software to our new server which has ben properly configured by a network and server expert.
Since the Dynamics products use DOMAIN and AD on the server can we export the configuration for all the above software and move them to the new server? Surely we will install all the software again on the new server but we wanted to use proper server name, different domain, proper disk mirror, hotswap, etc.
The question is that would the configurations we exported from the old software work on the new server? eventhough the domain is different? or do we have to have the same setup as the old server? What limitations do we face when exporting the customisation of the above software and importing them to the new server ?
Thanks in advance.
