  1. SQL Server 2016 is supported with cumulative update 9 for AX 2012 R3 with hotfix KB 3184496 and cumulative update 9 for AX 2012 R2 with hotfix KB 3184754

    Think this is twice the same text for AX2012 R2...
    "SQL Server 2016 is supported with cumulative update 9 for AX 2012 R2 with hotfix KB 3184496 and cumulative update 9 for AX 2012 R2 with hotfix KB 3184754"

    1. Thanks Rik, Fixed. KB links also updated.

    Unable to install 2016 RTM on a fresh installed Win2012R2 server, very sad. Also installed prerequisite KB's, but no luck. Server suddenly reboots during the setup.
    Anyone aware if AX2012R3 is also compabile with SQL 2016 SP1 ? It is not listed in the official MS compatibility sheet.

  8. X says:

    Do we need to upgrade AX (from 2012 R2 CU7) if we only use SQL 2016 for SSRS ?
