Want to upgrade to CRM 4.0 with SQL 2008 but I have SQL 2005 now.

Want to upgrade to CRM 4.0 with SQL 2008 but I have SQL 2005 now.

Post by cm9tZW » Sat, 09 Jan 2010 01:16:10


I have following Configurations for current MS CRM 3.0 system:
1. Windows 2003 Server
a. Crm 3.0 Server
b. Reporting Server 2005

2. SQL Server 2005
a. MSCRM, and
b. METABASE databases

I am planning to upgrade CRM 3.0 to 4.0 and SQL Server 2005 to 2008. For
this upgrade I need help to successfully complete it.

I have planned following steps for upgrade-
1. Upgrade CRM 3.0 to 4.0 with current SQL Server 2005
2. Then using Deployment Manager to move the database from SQL Server 2005
to 2008.

I read this article ( http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ) issues related
to installing CRM 4.0 with SQL 2008. But the hot fixes can be installed
during CRM 4.0 installation. But I am doing an upgrade with SQL Server 2005
and changing to SQL Server 2008 afterwards.

Has anyone done this kind on upgrade? Please help.
 
 
 

1. sql 2005 not removed after sql 2008 upgrade

2. Can't upgrade sql express 2005 to sql express 2008

I have never tried an upgrade on a sql server, and this first attempt is
going nowhere.

What already installed:
- sql server 2005 as instance sqlexpress
- sql server 2008 developer as instance sqlserver

I want to upgrade the 2005 express to 2008 express. I start with
SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe because this is 64 bit windows 7.

After selecting the upgrade option from the screen it checks around and
then presents an error "there are no features selected for upgrade"

I read http://www.yqcomputer.com/
some previous install attempt failed. None have. So what do I do?

3. sql 2005 to sql 2008 upgrade

4. Upgrading project server 2007 SQL 2005 DB to SQL 2008

5. Windows Server 2008 + SQL Server 2008 OR Windows Server 2003 + SQL Server 2005

6. SQL Server 2008 R2 Native Client backward-compatible to SQL 2005/2008??

7. upgrading from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005 with a clean install of CRM 3.

8. New SQL Server 2005 & 2008 Auditing Tool - Beta Testers Wanted (+Benefits)

9. CRM 1.2 with SQL 2000 redeployed to CRM 3.0 with SQL 2005
