How to run Microsoft CRM without Active Directory Controller?

We have had a successful Microsoft CRM installation for several years with a Windows Server 2003 Active Directory controller.  However, the Microsoft CRM app is being replaced with another CRM system.  We have made a virtual image of the Microsoft CRM server (which include SQL and the CRM databases); however, when we try to start the virtual (away from the DC) we understand that the Active Directory is required.

Is there a way we can run this CRM virtual away from its original AD?  Or without an AD at all?  (We wouldn't need to run it for long - just for archival purposes.)

You cant run CRM without AD but you can import the CRM database into a CRM deployment in a different domain.
