I finally have the approvals I need in order to upgrade our CRM. I have tested this in my lab and I believe I have the process down enough to start building my environment in PROD. My plan is to install CRM 2013 on a new 2012 R2 server and migrate the data, then once the server is proven stable do two upgrades in place on the new server to move to 2015, then eventually 2016.
My question is this: When I install 2013 on the new server, it asks me to point to the CRM OU where the CRM groups (PrivReportingGroup, PrivUserGroup...etc) are in Active Directory. If I install 2013 on that server and point it to the same OU will it cause any issues with my CRM 2011 that is currently running in Production? The goal here is to run this process during the weekend and still have CRM 2011 to run in parallel.
if you select the existing OU for new installation. it will create the similar groups (PrivReportingGroup, PrivUserGroup...etc) with different SID existing one will not be effected.
Thank you !
We have did this before, it will not cause any issue with your exiting CRM 2011. Thanks!Sam
