I am in process to setup MS Dyanmics CRM 2013 on Windows Server 2012 R2. I am following “Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Planning Guide” (Version 6.1.3) for setup planning.I found some prerequisites those needs to be installed on server before MS Dynamics CRM 2013 server installation as mentioned in above document. Please take a look to below mentioned lines for quick reference:
The following components must be installed and running on the computer where Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Server will be installed:• Services• Indexing ServiceTo install this service, see the Windows Server documentation.• IIS Admin• World Wide Web Publishing• Windows Data Access Components (MDAC) 6.0 (This is the default version of MDAC with Windows Server 2008.)• Microsoft ASP.NET (Must be registered, but does not have to be running.)
However I have done so many installations for CRM 2013 but I never go through these points ever and luckily I never faced any issues related to these. It seems, these features are auto managed by MS Dynamics CRM 2013 server.But this time, authorities wants to go with the procedure recommended by Microsoft, so I am following these documents.
Please help me to understand if these services are needed to install before MS Dynamics CRM 2013 installation or these features can be taken care by MS Dynamics CRM 2013 setup itself.
Also, can anyone please help me to understand what WDAC version and ASP.NET version needs to install and how we can check that. Or as I mentioned above it will be also taken care by CRM 2013 setup itself.
Please response early as possible.
I have found the below text in the “Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Planning Guide” (Version 6.1.3) which seems to be more related to CRM 2013 installation prerequisites/components on a “Windows 2008” Server setup.
The following components must be installed and running on the computer where Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Server will be installed:
My question is whether above components are still valid to be installed first for the case of installing CRM 2013 on a “Windows 2012” R2 server and if yes then whats their new name under Windows 2012 R2 as I don’t seem to find Indexing Service in 2012 R2?
Thanks for your help in advance for my above urgent query.
Please help us to understand these configurations.
Many of those are installed when having IIS. The indexing service I believe is the Windows Search Service.
When u install, the crm install all the iis features u need, your job is make the users, install the sql and reporting, .net. make the decision how to install and wich servers, then full server or front server, and backend server.
CRM requeriments it might help.
