Enfource MS Dynamics CRM Deployment manager to keep same GUID during import

Many time we need to import organization in current MS CRM server from some other MS CRM server. When we import any organization, a new GUID for that organization will be created, but what if I want to keep same GUID in new environment … is it even possible?

Yes, it is. Here are steps for that…

  1. Click Start, click Run, type ‘regedit’, and then click OK.
  2. Locate and then click the following registry sub key: — HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSCRM
  3. Right-click MSCRM, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
  4. Name this DWORD value as ‘OptimizeOrgImport’
  5. Right-click ‘OptimizeOrgImport’, and then click Modify.
  6. In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
  7. On the File menu, click Exit
  8. Restart the CRM web server before getting started with the Import process.
  9. That’s it.

Once this done every organization will have same GUID which is in older environment and important is, it wont allow to import same organization. To import same organization in same environment after implementing above registry entry either you have to delete the organization and reimport it with newer database or change ‘OptimizeOrgImport = 0’
