    Is AX 2012 R2 CU9 kernel enough or are application updates needed as well?

    Thanks in advance

    This website is awesome for learning

  3. Cheikh FAYE says:

    Good news, we believe that the new Microsoft Dynamics AX will be too.

  4. Cheikh FAYE says:

    Is the new Microsoft Dynamics AX simply running on Microsoft Visual Basic ?

  5. No, just patching the KERNEL is not enough. You need to run the APPLICATION at the build specified.

    When will Office 2016 be supported with AX 2012 R3? We have a prospect that is asking and I can not get this information anywhere.

    Thanks,
    Nancy

    Downloaded the AX 2012 System Requirements at the link provided.
    It has this on the header page…just to make sure we’re talking about the same doc:
    ———————————————–
    Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 System Requirements
    Microsoft Corporation
    Published: July 2016
    ———————————————–

    Here is everything from the SQL2012 requirements CELL….nothing about SQL2012 Service Pack 3.
    Note: I even searched the doc for “Service Pack 3” and “SP3” ..and no references that refer to SQL2012 in particular.
    So it appears: The Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 System Requirements have “not” been updated to reflect this change.
    ==============================================
    Service Pack 1
    (http://www.microsoft.com/enus/download/det
    ails.aspx?id=35575) for Microsoft SQL Server
    2012 is supported with the following updates:
    • Cumulative update 5
    (https://mbs2.microsoft.com/Knowledgebas
    e/KBDis play.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;2828929)
    for AX 2012
    • Cumulative update 1
    (https://mbs2.microsoft.com/Knowledgebas
    e/KBDis play.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;2807685)
    for AX 2012 R2
    Service Pack 2 with Cumulative Update 2 or later
    (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2983175) for
    Microsoft SQL Server 2012 is supported with the
    following updates:
     Cumulative update 7 for AX 2012,
    Cumulative update 7 for AX 2012 R2
     AX 2012 R3
    =========================================

      One more question: We have AX 2012 R2 CU7 …. We currently have SQL2012 SP2 CU3 applied. If we apply SQL2012 SP3 to our AX2012 R2 CU7 environment, will we be violating the System Requirements.

      Your document says to apply the latest SQL CU to whatever SQL version we are running. When you say “version” are you referring to the formal “SQL Major Version” (I know it can’t be just the SQL Minor Version because that changes with CU.)…Or do when you say Version, you mean SQL Version+SP?

      The reason I ask is because it seems like we could apply SQL2012 SP3 to our AX 2012 R2 CU7 setup as simply a better SQL2012 version than SQL2012 SP2 CU3?

      Thanks
