Issue while Deploying AX 2012 R3 on Azure via Life Cycle Service


We are deploying AX 2012 R3 CU9 on Azure. This is for the development environment. We have setup a Site-to-Site VPN with our on-premise environment. It seems that we still need to setup AD on Azure & do a domain trust. Is this correct? or can we join the AX dev instances on Azure to our on prem AD?

Would appreciate for your quick response.



Hi Muneeb,

The strategy you mentioned sounds about right. Recently I was involved in an AX 2012 R3 implementation in Microsoft Azure where similar architecture was implemented and it works like a charm.

Hope this helps.


Hi Harish,

Thanks for your response.
