Adding a Deployment Administrator

Use the following procedures to commands to add the CRM PowerShell Snap-in, and create a new Deployment Administrator.

  1. Logon to the CRM server with the Deployment Administrator role, such as CRMDEP01, using the account used to install CRM services.

  2. Launch an administrative Windows PowerShell command window from the quick launch bar, or from the Start menu under Program Files, Accessories, Windows PowerShell, and then Windows PowerShell.

  3. In the Windows PowerShell command window, execute the following commands:

    Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Crm.PowerShell

    New-CrmDeploymentAdministrator -Name contoso\<username>


    • No data will be returned upon successful completion, as the call is asynchronously processed.
  4. To verify that the account was properly created, either open the Deployment Manager and confirm the account is displayed in the Deployment Administrators list, or run the following CRM PowerShell cmdlet and confirm the account specified is found in the Name field.
