We are setting up DEV Environment for our EP Portal Development on Dynamics AX 2009.
We would be using EP extensively in our project as we are building up some store portals web pages. Currently, our environment topology for DEV is that we have different servers for AOS and EP and Role Centers respectively. We have around 15 developers who would be using their individual machines to build up Enterprise portal pages, these guys have Windows XP running on their local pc’s with Visual Studio.
Hence, we are trying to install the EP Developer tools on their machines but the setup can’t proceed as it expects EP and Role Center to be installed on the same physical machine where we are installing Developer Tools.
Logically, I think it should be only the BC.Net which should be installed on client machines along with the DEV tools as the BC.Net knows which AOS to talk to and thereby EP and Role Centers. But, this is not working.
Can anyone enlighten me if any workaround or any solution/fix is available for this? I would appreciate if you can drop a comment here or mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org. If I find an answer, I will post it back here.
