Setting a backup system for Dynamics CRM
Posted on 2011-09-10
I have CRM installed on 2 production servers (P1 with the CRM Server and P2 with the DB).
In the same network (same Active Directory) I have 2 test servers: T1 with CRM 2011 Server and T2 with the SQL DB.
All servers have Windows 2008 R2 and we use SQL Server 2008 R2.
I’ve imported the production CRM database to Test and it works fine.
I’d like to do the same (import from time to time the production DB to Test), so in case the production servers fail, I can use the test server.
Having the servers down for a few hours is not a problem.
When I try to import again the production DB on the test servers, I get a message that I already imported the organization.
Is there a way to re-import the same organization from time to time, thus refreshing the data I have on the test servers?
