I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

last question, what is best practice of breaking the roles up on separate servers.  our current crm seems to occassionally have performance issues.

Chinmay PatelChief Technical NinjaCommented:
Yes. that is something that I can help with for sure.

But we have to have the scenarios to decide it.

For example, if you have multiple workflows and complex logic and the volume of records to be processed by WFs is high than you should go for a dedicated server to host AsyncProcessing Services.

If you have a lot of users accessing CRM front end then you might want to have a dedicated box for WebApplicationServer.

If yoy have a lot of custom code then you might want to go with a dedicated box for OrganizationWebService.

Other than this, I don't think other components might be affecting the prerformance[This is strictly an opinion though].

also you might want to check your existing Infra and custom code written for CRM if performance is still not upto the mark.

Regards,
Chinmay.

You are not possibly thinnking to deploy it "with" CRM 4.0 on same server right? or are you?

Jack_son_Author Commented:
on a separate test server, does it do anything in AD that would cause a problem for 4.0 version?

Chinmay PatelChief Technical NinjaCommented:
