Deploying CRM as a Hosted Service

The primary focus of this document is to provide complete deployment instructions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 in a multi-tenant (hosted) environment. Because hosted Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 requires a variety of supporting infrastructure to be in place before the actual CRM deployment process begins, the deployment instructions reference the installation and configuration of Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange Server, and other required servers. Only after these supporting technologies have been properly installed will you be directed to deploy the CRM-specific components.
