CRM Deployment Manager and Database restore

CRM Deployment Manager and Database restore

Post by TWF4Ri » Sat, 29 Oct 2005 04:15:06


We had a system problem where we had to reinstall CRM 1.2 and had only a
backup of SQL Server DB.
According to IG, it is enough to restore the DB and use Deployment Manager
to point to the new DB. But this seems to have few problems looking to other
entries here in this forum.
I have two question
a) why the Deployment manager offers only _MSCRM and _Metabase
re-assignments and not all DB including MSCRMDistribution and CRMCRYSTAL?
b) reassigning _MSCRM and _METABASE does not help us, because afterwards
starting CRM and login offers different error messages, if we login as Admin
it offers access failure and if we login as a "ex" CRM User it offers an
object error.

Any help is highly appreciated.
Thanks

The distribution DB will be recreated when replication is re-enabled. Not
sure about Crystal, but my guess is it will be rebuilt.

If having issues with this, I recommend opening a support ticket as there
are too many variables that could be at play here.
