Hello,

We have been looking for a way to migrate schema and data of an Online dynamics 365 Crm environment to an on-premise one. Is there any supported and documented way do this kind of migration? Or we should extract the customizations one by one and then export the data with excel? (a process that will take forever in this case)

    Hi,

    For customization - You can create single solution with all components and export the solution from online , Import to on-premise

    For Data- you could use kingswaysoft ssis toolkit

    Look like Chat GPT wrote this. Dynamics 365 Migration Tool does not exist. There is a Configuration Migration tool and it migrates only data.

    hi

    Yes, there is a supported and documented way to migrate a Dynamics 365 CRM environment from online to on-premises. Microsoft provides the Dynamics 365 Migration Tool, which is a command-line tool that can be used to migrate both schema and data from Dynamics 365 CRM online to on-premises.

    The Migration Tool uses Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) to migrate the data, and it can be run on a computer that is connected to both the source and destination environments. The tool supports a variety of data sources and can be customized to handle complex data mappings.

    Here are the high-level steps to use the Migration Tool to migrate a Dynamics 365 CRM environment from online to on-premises:

    Set up the on-premises environment with the required components and configure the database connection.

    Install and configure the Migration Tool on a computer that has access to both the source and destination environments.

    Create a migration project in the Migration Tool and configure the source and destination connections.

    Map the source and destination data fields and customize the migration settings as needed.

    Run the migration project and monitor the progress.

    For detailed instructions and guidance, refer to the official Microsoft documentation for the Dynamics 365 Migration Tool.

    Note that migrating data from an online to on-premises environment can be a complex process, and it is recommended to thoroughly test the migration before performing it in a production environment. Additionally, there may be some customizations or configurations in the online environment that may not be compatible with the on-premises environment, so it is important to identify and resolve any potential issues before starting the migration.
