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.)
