We just did a domain migration to a new domain. We cannot get into CRM at all now. I can't even open the deployment manager. Everything mostly gives us permissions errors. I've tried changing settings on IIS but that doesn't do anything. Thanks

Did you follow the steps in this link underneath the title:

Redeploy the Microsoft Dynamics CRM deployment that includes the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server within the same domain or to another domain.

I can't even get to the deployment manager. It doesn't give me permission. Should I be running this from the CD?

The problem with this article is that it does not seem to list our particular situation. We had a working CRM install on our domain. We migrated the entire domain to a new name. We now have a CRM server that wont' allow access however, we do not want to install a new CRM on a different server, we simply want the existing one to work within the new domain name (migrated domain) that the CRM server sits in.

I would have thought that there would be issues with trying to get the exsiting installation to work in a new domain. When CRM is installed and the databases created it is linking into the domain so if you change the domain it won't like it.

Did you take a full backup of the databases before you moved the domain? If so you can follow those instructions and do a fresh install of CRM and it should be fine.

If you didn't then I'm not sure what you can do as I haven't come across this before. You could try looking in the config files to see if you can change the domains manually although unless someone else knows for sure I would probably raise it with Microsoft directly.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Backup the SQL Database - if you cant login to SQL, copy the raw files,  restore or attach the database to SQL (If you cant login to SQL, reinstall another instance), reinstall  a fresh install of CRM and from Deployment Manager import the database mapping the users to their domain accounts.
