Things to note for a CRM3 to CRM2011 upgrade

Hi team,

Two things (I found out so far) which are important to know for a CRM3 to CRM2011 upgrade project - which need to be part of a system requirement checklist –

1. CRM 2011 requires SQL Server 2008 (use SP1 for R2 to avoid a known issue)
If the existing SQL Server in PRODUCTION is below this version, a SQL Server upgrade is required so licensing and hardware costs would need to be considered.

2. CRM 3.0 Server is NOT supported on 64bit platform
A (transitional) 32bit server is required for a CRM 3.0 to CRM 4.0 upgrade. After that, the databases would be copied and used in a 64bit server. Even though the 32bit server is only required during the upgrade, it is a part of the process we need to consider.
