Upgrade the E-mail Router

Upgrade the E-mail Router

To upgrade your installation of the E-mail Router from Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, you first back up the state files that are used by the E-mail Router, and then install the E-mail Router. Follow the steps in the following tasks:

Upgrade Task 1: Back up and use E-mail Router state files and Smart Matching settings. For more information, see “Back up and use E-mail Router state files” below.

Upgrade Task 2: Install the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 E-mail Router. For more information, see “Upgrade the E-mail Router to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011” below.

Upgrading both the E-mail Router and Microsoft Dynamics CRM

If you plan to upgrade both the E-mail Router and Microsoft Dynamics CRM, perform the upgrade tasks in the following order:

Stop the Microsoft CRM Email Router service. To do this, on the Start menu, type services.msc, and then press ENTER; or click Run, type services.msc, and then press ENTER. Right-click the Microsoft CRM Email Router service, and then click Stop.

Upgrade Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Server to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Server. For more information, see Upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Installing Guide.

Install the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 E-mail Router:

If you already have the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 E-mail Router installed, upgrade to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 E-mail Router, as described below.

If you do not have the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 E-mail Router installed, install the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 E-mail Router

You might need to restart the Microsoft CRM Email Router service after the upgrade to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 E-mail Router finishes. To do this, in the services list, right-click Microsoft CRM Email Router, and then click Start.

Back up and use E-mail Router state files and Smart Matching settings

We recommend that you back up the files that store the state of your E-mail Router before you upgrade to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 E-mail Router. The following steps describe how to back up and use these files to recover from a failed upgrade to the next version of the E-mail Router.

To back up and use E-mail Router state files

Locate the following files in the folder <drive:>\Program Files\Microsoft CRM Email\Service\:

Microsoft.Crm.Tools.EmailAgent.Configuration.bin

Microsoft.Crm.Tools.EmailAgent.SystemState.xml

Microsoft.Crm.Tools.EmailAgent.xml

Microsoft.Crm.Tools.Email.Management.config

EncryptionKey.xml

Copy these files to a safe location.

If you have modified the smart match e-mail correlation settings that are located in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MSCRM Windows Registry, you must add the effective change in the System Settings area of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 application. The smart match settings are no longer maintained in the Windows Registry and must be modified in the application. For more information about how to change Smart Matching settings in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, see the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Help. The subkey names and default values are:

HashFilterKeywords. ^[\s]*([\w]+\s?:[\s]*)+

HashMaxCount. 20

HashDeltaSubjectCount. 0

HashMinAddressCount. 2

Perform the upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 E-mail Router. For more information, see the following procedure, “To upgrade the E-mail Router on a server named EXBE01″ below.

If the E-mail Router upgrade succeeds, you can discard the backup files and exit this procedure. If the E-mail Router upgrade fails, continue with the following procedure.
