Easier Install: Microsoft CRM 3.0 Less Dependency on Active Directory


Gosh, I’ve been installing Microsoft CRM since v1.0 (starting with v1.0 Beta in 2002) – All I can say is that 3.0 continues to amaze me on how much easier it is to install and comes with much improved proactive pre-install checks.
 
For example, here are some observations:
 
1. Active Directory can be in Mix Mode!!!
 
2. Microsoft CRM can be installed in any sub-domain within a Domain Forest (no special tweaks needed)
 
3. The stand alone Windows 2003 Domain Controller(s) does not have to at SP1
 
 
 
I’d recalled back in the days with v1.0 where if you’d missed a step/requirement setup – the whole thing would blow up without much warning…  I do not miss those days 🙂

    Can I install Microsoft CRM 3.0 on a Windows2003SP1 server with SQL2005 and a Domain Controller?

  2. Frank says:

    For support purposes – No.  If you want to install Microsoft CRM on a Domain Controller, only SBS is supported, since SBS contains the AD/DC all in one.
