MS Dynamics AX Basic mistakes

I added some product of type "Service" in Dynamics AX 2012 R3.

Basically, before one is able to sell those products, it's usefull to "validate" that those products have all the required attributed assigned to them.

To do just that, one needs to go to "Released products", and then press "validate"

Validate a released product

By validating, don't be surprised to see this following message

Values needs to be specified for the fields Item group, Storage dimension group, Tracking dimension group. Specify the missing field values and try to validate again.

The way to solve this issue is to sellect the storage dimension group, and tracking dimension group in the "dimension group" field, under set up

Another shot at MS Dynamics AX

I have been trying again to develop something useful on MS Dynamics AX 2012 R3.

I have set up my Server, Client, and started to set up my products.

When I thought I was done with all the configuration necessary, I came across that message

Item model group, Item group have not been specified for item. Go to the Released products details form to complete the setup.

When I go to the Released products details form, there is no visible option to enter the Item model group. If somebody knows how to do that, please let me know.

 I have found out how to fix that issue. In the Manage costs section of the released product details, the Item Group selection can be seen.

My first guess was to go to product information management - common - Released products but I do not see any option to set up the item model group in there. I guess I need to go back to reading about item model group.

Another requirement when you start deploying MS Dynamics AX is the cryptic message. I added my domain from control panel - system, and username- administrator, and then no error message. I will see the consequence later.

Setting up your help server in MS Dynamics Ax

posted May 19, 2013, 3:00 PM by Nicholas Ethier

We do not recommend using your administrator for the help server dynamics ax.

Your domain should exclude any extension at the end. In my case, my server was named in my computer settings, but I had to enter HOMESERVER2012 for it to work....Weird

Enabling help server

posted May 19, 2013, 2:55 PM by Nicholas Ethier

When trying to enable your help server, Dynamics will ask you on which domain you want to enter your data. It will complain if you try to enter your administrator credential. (To confirm on which domain you are, check inside systems, it will tell you on which domain you are currently.
