Step 4: Configure NLB for the deployment

After the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 installations are complete, run Deployment Manager to configure NLB for the deployment.

Verify or change the Web addresses

  1. On the Microsoft Dynamics CRM server, start Deployment Manager.
  2. In the console tree, right-click Microsoft Dynamics CRM, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Web Address tab and make sure that the virtual cluster name, such as crmcluster:5555 appears.

    Important

    Depending on how you deployed the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 role group or separate server role installation, and the configuration of each server in the NLB cluster, the Web Application Server, Organization Web Service, Discovery Web Service, or Deployment Web Service Web addresses may be different. For example, if you installed the Front End Server role group on a server in an NLB cluster that is named crmcluster1 in the contoso domain but installed the Deployment Administration Server role group on a different server in a different NLB cluster such as crmcluster2 in the same domain, the name of the Web Application Server, Organization Web Service, Discovery Web Service Web addresses will be different from the Deployment Web Service Web address.

    For a Full Server role deployment, all Web addresses will use the same computer name or FQDN of the cluster. If you are using a TCP port other then 80 (non-secure HTTP) or 443 (secure HTTP or SSL), you must specify the port number by appending the FQDN name with :5555, where 5555 is the port number, such as crmcluster:5555.

Set NLB for the deployment

In order to make Microsoft Dynamics CRM aware of the NLB cluster, you must select The deployment uses an NLB option on the deployment. To do this, follow these steps.

  1. On the Microsoft Dynamics CRM server, start Deployment Manager.
  2. In the console tree, right-click Microsoft Dynamics CRM, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Web Address tab and then click Advanced.
  4. Select The deployment uses an NLB. Click OK and then close Deployment Manager.

Configure domain names for IFD

To configure Microsoft Dynamics CRM for IFD, you must start Deployment Manager and run the Configure Internet-facing Deployment Wizard to add or revise the domain values. Depending on how you deployed the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 role group or separate server role installation, and the configuration of each server in the NLB cluster, the Web Application Server Domain, Organization Web Service Domain, and Discovery Web Service Domain values use the NLB virtual cluster domain name. For example, if the Web Application Server is installed on an Internet-facing NLB cluster that has the FQDN virtual name crmcluster.contoso.com, enter contoso.com as the Web Application Server Domain value.

For more information about how to configure internal Web address and external domain values, see the Deployment Manager Help.
