Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 on SQL Virtualization


Today I was doing some AX 2012 performance R&D to see how big is the contirbution of SQL to AX 2012 performance issues.

From my experience and following Microsoft guidelines, we would strongly recommend not to virtualize your Microsoft SQL server. For larger Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 installations a Microsoft SQL Server installation on physical hardware is recommended. However, Microsoft supports Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 installations with virtualized hardware for a number of virtualization solutions.

AX 2012:Client Calendar lookups do not consider local system regional settings

A strange design change in AX 2012 Client calendar look ups observed.

To give you a brief, until AX 2009,we considered AX client calendar taking the local client system setting. Meaning, if we go to windows >> change the date, time settings and change the first day of the week as monday;my expectation with AX 2009 is, if I do this modification and open my AX client and then go to any of the date field and click Calendar lookup then I should be able to see the calendar for this month starting with day as Monday.

Strange issue of webfiles or webpage nodes not editable in AX 2012

I was facing a strange issue with one of the AX 2012 implementation with customisation of EP and web deployments.

A brief on what we had seen  si as follows

The issue was that you can’t edit web files or web pages in the AOT – so you change a property on one, you save it, looks like it worked, but close it and reopen it again and the change has reverted.
