One of the issues we have faced with all deployments is the difficulty of transferring the gold 'reference' configuration from the default tier-1 dev/test box across to the tier 2 UAT Sandbox, prior to go live. This has proved a very time consuming process.
Other than the process described here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/unified-operations/dev-itpro/database/copy-database-from-sql-server-to-azure-sql , are there any recommendations on how to improve & speed up this process ?
Are there any plans to allow partners to submit a service request to copy a tier-1 across to a tier-2 environment ?
Thank you for this question, we do understand your pain. We have god news for you. There is a feature in preview right now that automates the flow. Here is how it works:
• Export the Golden Configuration database from your Tier-1 environment
• Upload that database to the Asset library in LCS
• Go to the sandbox (Tier-2 or higher) environment
• Go to Maintain button on the environment, there will be an option to Move database
We do not have a final release date yet, but it is actively being worked on.
I hope I answered your question. If so, can you please mark it as answered?

To piggy back on this request - how about refresh from PROD to Tier 1 machines, allowing LCS refresh between T1 and T2 machines to streamline that?
Hi Nicholas, I agree that would also be very useful at times !
Claudia - is that a possibility as part of that feature ?
Ultimately, this is the idea. We will take it in stages, based on priority – first we want to land the direction from SQL Server to Azure SQL. Once that is completed, we will handle the other direction.
