How to run a Microsoft Ax 2012 Hyper-V on VirtualBox (Enterpris Portal Problem)

November 26, 2011 1 comment

In my previous post I described how to run the standard Microsoft Ax 2012 Hyper-V VPC on your regular Windows Client with VirtualBox. There was one thing I forgot to mention, when you want to use the Enterprise Portal (and you probably will) you need to adjust the windows hosts-file on the VPC.


Now the file should look like this:

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a ‘#’ symbol.
# For example:
#          # source server
#              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#       localhost
#    ::1             localhost

Technical Conference 2011 (Nice)

November 17, 2011 No comment

Just got back from the Microsoft Technical Conference 2011 in Nice and attended a lot of Sessions with three of my colleagues. Here are already some interesting things to remember, I’ll try to add more later.


Microsoft Announced Information Source (beta). All users that have access to CustomerSource or PartnerSource can use their login to access this site. The site is a set of tools to make predictable implementations. Also under Services you can find a Beta version for the Intelligent Data Management Framework (IDMF), Code Upgrade Service and the Security Advisor Upgrade Tool for Microsoft Dynamics Ax 2012.


When you make modifications to standard Ax, try to use events where possible. You can use delegates or pre-/post events. This should make upgrading easier in the future.


Also MPF presented a session on how a ISV can creat its solution. You can find part of the demo here.


This is a start and I hope to post more details about the sessions I attended soon.
