Is there an easy way to change default 5555 port CRM uses and are there any implications?
You can easily change the port settings in 2 places:
1> In IIS, go into the properties of the CRM website and enter the default port 80 or any preferred used port number.
2> In the registry under the MSCRM hive, update the ServerURL regkey.
"You can also setup an IIS web site using the desired port prior to the install and have CRM use that website during the install vs. creating its own. There is no way to override the install’s use of 5555 for the site it creates though.
Due to some of the nuances of what CRM does with the site and how it handles host headers and such, it may be easier to uninstall/reinstall in this manner than to try to mess with the port."
Thanks to Will and Matt for explaining this. Hope this helps. Thanks - D
