Dynamics AX Retail/POS Deployment

A busy long weekend with various project deployments coming my way. The best pick out of those was AX Retail/POS Deployment as it had various components and various teams working on the deployment and it was a long one which spanned over more than 7 hours.

We deployed the new POS app onto 2 stores. This was the second release and apart from the normal Dynamics AX AOD Deployment cycle, I had a chance to deploy some new retail components like installing Transaction, Data Director Services, installing LS POS .Net Retail Scheduler Service, Pushing the Data Director jobs onto the stores, The deployment went cool without any hiccups apart from a few network glitches.

Running Multiple Instances of EP on Single Machine

These days, I was looking to collect some information for configuring multiple instances of EP on a single server. e.g. running DEV and TEST EP on the same box as many clients dont have the bandwidth or budget for having 2 separate servers for both. Here's a great piece of information from Mey MeenakshiSundaram about running multiple instances of EP on the same server. Thanks Mey for the great post. It's written for Dynamics AX 4.0 but I believe this should work for Dynamics AX 2009 as well.

Making a comeback..

Dear Readers,

This year started with a busy note for me both professionally and personally. At the work side, saw lot of changes in processes, teams, had to work round the clock for troubleshooting EP issues, Cluster and database troubleshooting, performance issues. Couple of our mission critical projects running on a 24 * 7 model saw unplanned downtime. On personal front busy with mortgaging for new house and a visit to pilgrimage shrine is coming up. I will try to get some intersesting blog posts in the coming weeks.

Keep on reading and welcome all your suggestions and advises. Thanks to all of you.
