It is an adaptation of the original series of 6 articles " Installing Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 "published inelblogdeDynamicsCRM.com and
is based on the deployment guide Dynamics CRM 2011 available for free here.
In any case, this guide replaces the Installation Manual on the Implementation Guide, which is the official guide to Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform 2011.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM data stores all customer relationship management (CRM) in a database SQL Server. It is important that the computer running SQL Server is located close to the Microsoft CRM server. This means that there must be a high-speed network
standing between the team of Microsoft CRM server and the computer running SQL Server to have an efficient performance of Microsoft CRM. An error in the network communications between computers running Microsoft CRM Server and SQL Server can cause data loss
and service can no longer be available.
The same applies to Active Directory. Microsoft CRM depends on Active Directory for security information. If you lose communication with Active Directory, Microsoft CRM will not work correctly. If communications with Active Directory are not effective, will
be affected the performance of Microsoft CRM. It is therefore important to locate a domain controller for Active Directory on the same network connection speed permanent than computers that run Microsoft CRM and Microsoft SQL Server.
Once treated the prerequisites mentioned in the previous section, proceed to install the product, which is described in detail in this section.
We begin with a section devoted to the installation of SQL Server 2008/2008 R2 if the case is not yet installed.
Although so far we have successfully installed the product, we still have one more step to work with reports, view them and create our own reports. Also, if we operate the system in Spanish, we proceed to install the language pack (language pack) accordingly. This
section will describe these activities.
That step is to install Reporting Services extensions to Dynamics CRM, which is performed on the server SQL Server Reporting services by following these steps :
So far we have fully installed Dynamics CRM 2011 and what remains for us is putting on the Spanish language pack for our users to use the system in this language instead of the base language (English in this case).
We can also perform an installation base directory being the Spanish language if we wish, provided that both the operating system and SQL Server are in Spanish or otherwise, in English. Eg if the Windows Server 2008 is the Portuguese can not do an installation
of Dynamics CRM 2011 in Spanish, but that we do in English or Portuguese.
In essence, there are substantial benefits to justify installing it directly in Spanish beyond the customization of entities can be done only in the base language. The end user will not notice any difference.
It is worth mentioning that the language pack must be installed in both Dynamics CRM server and client using Outlook (except to install the Outlook client from the Web CRM via the button 'Get CRM For Outlook' and are working on Spanish).
However, the steps for installing the Spanish language pack on the server, are :
