Disable or enable a server

 

Updated: December 9, 2016

Applies To: Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016

You can use the Servers area to disable or enable a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Server.

System_CAPS_warningWarning

When you disable a server, users can’t access the Microsoft Dynamics 365 application through the server. If the deployment contains only a single server that is running Microsoft Dynamics 365, users can’t access the application.

Depending on the server roles that are installed, disabling a server stops the following services or server roles:

  • Web Application Server

  • Organization Web Service

  • Help Server

  • Discovery Web Service

  • Deployment Web Service

  • Asynchronous Processing Service

  • Asynchronous Processing Service (maintenance)

  • Sandbox Processing Service

  • Microsoft Dynamics 365 VSS Writer service

Enabling a server that was disabled starts the server role service.

System_CAPS_importantImportant

You can’t disable the SQL Server and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Reporting Extensions server roles by using the Deployment Manager disable feature.

System_CAPS_tipTip

You can implement the procedure described here by using a Windows PowerShell cmdlet. For more information, see the Disable-CrmServer and Enable-CrmServer commands in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM PowerShell Reference.
