Creating Virtual Machines

So, the other day I was creating a Virtual Machine (VM) Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1, then installed SQL Server 2008 R2 so I could get MS Dynamics CRM 2013 on the machine. First had to add the roles, so the installation would work without problems. The roles I added were: IIS, File System and had to run dcpromo.exe to add a domain to the server because CRM installation needs it.

When I was installing the SQL Server I’ve put all of the services with the same user (Network Service) and the installation went ok, but after I had to change it to the user is was logged on, because the SQL Agent wasn’t working and was saying that couldn’t start running. After the change it started to work. Had some problems on the Reporting Service too, so had to change it to Local System and started to work fine.

I’m going to install MS Dynamics NAV 2009 (or maybe 2013) on this machine and Jet Data Manager v12.7.0.

I’m thinking of doing a VM with Windows Server 2012 and SQL Server 2012 R2 too (CRM 2013, NAV 2013), that way I’ll have a VM with the late versions of softwares available.

Any questions or help, write on the comments that I’ll try to help.
