Difference between GAC, Database and Disk deployments in Microsoft Dynamics CRM

MS CRM Notes


Difference between GAC, Database and Disk deployments

GAC Deployment

  • Plugin assebly registered in GAC
  • Plugins do not backed up with database
  • Plugins cannot be added to the solution
  • Plugins needs IISRESET to refresh
  • Does not support Dynamics CRM online
  • You can refer external DLL assemblies used in Plugin only if they are registered in GAC
DB Deployment

  • Plugin uploaded into the database
  • Plugins backed up with database
  • Plugins can be added to the solution
  • Plugins do not need IISRESET to refresh
  • Supports Dynamics CRM online deployment
  • You can refer external DLL assemblies used in Plugin only if they are registered in GAC
Disk deployments

  • Plugin assembly saved on CRM server hard disk
  • Plugins do not backed up with database
  • Plugins cannot be added to the solution
  • Plugins needs IISRESET to refresh
  • Does not support Dynamics CRM online
  • You can refer external DLL assemblies from the disk and from GAC
Note:
  • With ILMerge external referenced assemblies can be merged together to deploy as a single plugin assemly. This will remove the restriction with Dynamics CRM online deployments, but large assemblies are slow to load.
Misconception:
  • You need to deploy plugin dll on the CRM server to enable remote debugging, but this is not required for database deployment, you will need to put pdb file in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\Server\bin\assembly folder on crm server.
Benefits of Database Deployment
  • Only database assemblies can be packaged in solutions
  • Zero service interruption to update a database assembly
  • Simplified organization backup / import.
  • Disk assemblies will not support multiple versions
  • All assemblies consolidated into a single place
  • Sandbox and CRM Online only support database assemblies
