Use Deployment Manager to manage the deployment


Applies To: Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Deployment Manager is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that system administrators and value-added resellers use to manage Deployment Administrator accounts, organizations, servers, and licenses for Microsoft Dynamics 365 deployments.

Note the following:

  • To use Deployment Manager, you must have the Deployment Administrator role. During Microsoft Dynamics 365 Server Setup, the process automatically assigns that role to the user who is running Setup.


    Make sure that at least two or three trusted people have the Deployment Administrator role. This avoids system lockout if the primary deployment administrator is unavailable.

  • To create and manage Microsoft Dynamics 365 user accounts, you must use the Microsoft Dynamics 365 web client or Dynamics 365 for Outlook.

  • The Deployment Administrator role is separate from the Microsoft Dynamics 365 user security role. A Deployment Administrator may or may not have a Microsoft Dynamics 365 user security role.
