How to change organization and database name in MS Dynamics CRM 4.0 and 2011

You can easily change the display name of an CRM 4.0 and 2011 organization by disabling the organization in the Deployment manager and then edit the organization display name property. But changing the display name does not change the server url or database name.

Here’s how to:

  1. From CRM Deployment Manager
    1. Disable the organization.
    2. Select Edit Organization and change the Display name to <NewName>.
    3. Delete the organization.
  2. From SQL Server Management Studio
    1. To prevent the database being locked, take the organization datbase offline (Tasks –> Take offline) then bring it back online (Tasks –> Bring online).
    2. Rename the database to the new name
      1. Newname_MSCRM.
  3. From CRM Deployment Manager
    1. Choose import organization and select the newly renamed database. Follow the wizard and your done!
