Windows Server 2008 Roles / Services Conflict

    Question

  • I am trying to pre configure Windows Server 2008 for a MS Dynamics CRM 4.0 install after reading MS help & support Article ID: 950100 - Support for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 on Windows Server 2008-based computers , upon trying to install Indexing Service Role in File Services Roles ... I am presented with the following message Windows Search Service and Indexing Service Cannot both be installed on the same server.  Any body know a workaround for this problem?

  • Hi,

     

    The Indexing Service role service and the Windows Search Service role service cannot co-exist.

     

    To add the Indexing Service role service, please remove the Windows Search Service role service first.

     

    Hope it helps.
