How to install the Microsoft Dynamics CRM server roles

Move the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server or one of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM server roles. However, leave the SQL Server and the SQL Server Reporting Services server intact

  1. Install the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 or server role on a new server. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. On the new computer, install Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011.
    2. During the installation process, type the name of the SQL Server on which the MSCRM_CONFIG database exists in the Select Deployment Options dialog box, and then click Connect to, and if necessary, upgrade an existing deployment.
    3. Complete the installation.
  2. Uninstall the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 or the server role from the old Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. In Control Panel, open the Programs and Features item.
    2. Right-click Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Server, and then click Uninstall/Change.
    3. Complete the removal wizard to remove Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 or server role on the old server.

    Note

    If you cannot uninstall the old Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 or server role in step 2 because of a hardware failure, go to step 3.

  3. Remove the server from Deployment Manager. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. On the computer that is running Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, and then click Deployment Manager.
    2. Click Servers. A list of the servers in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM deployment appears. If no servers appear, right-click Servers, and then click Refresh.
    3. Right-click the server that is not in the deployment, click Delete, and then click Yes. The server is removed from the MSCRM_CONFIG database.

    Note

    Depending on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM roles that you move, you may have to run the Configuration Wizard for the E-mail Router to update the configuration. You may also have to run the Configuration Wizard for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook to connect to the new Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011.
