With the release of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, we have had several questions regarding the software and hardware requirements of the new version. So, here they are:
The server must be running Windows Server 2008 Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter or Web Server, their 2008 R2 equivalents or Windows Server 2012 Datacenter or Standard. Please note the newly released Server 2012 R2 is not currently supported. The server may also be virtualized using Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2 or 2012 Hyper-V
IIS requirements remain the same. One issue we have seen with clients is having multiple http or https bindings for the CRM website. This was not supported in CRM 2011 and is still unsupported in CRM 2013.
SQL requirements remain the same with CRM 2013 supporting SQL Server 2008 Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter or Developer editions as well as SQL Server 2012 Standard, Business Intelligence or Enterprise.
