    Hi,

    The Microsoft Dynamics AX Update Installer give us no Internet Connection Problem in our Server despite I can Login in LCS from this server. Any idea which Internet properties/Firewall should I take in account?

  13. VDY says:

    can CU8 be installed on system with AX 2012 R2 CU7 ?

  14. Cody says:

    Hi VDY,
    According to the installation documentation:

    "Two methods are available to install CU8. Choose a method based on whether AX 2012 R3 is already installed in your environment. If AX 2012 R3 is already installed, you must use the Update wizard and complete the update process to apply CU8. If you are installing
    AX 2012 R3 for the first time, you can use the Setup wizard and the slipstreaming process to install CU8 together with the rest of the product. When updates are slipstreamed, Setup automatically detects and applies them."

    Short answer is that you must upgrade to R3 to install CU8 successfully.
