Upgrade AX 2009 SP1 HF8 to AX 2012 R3 CU9


We are running into the below issues while we are upgrading from AX 2009 SP1 HF8 to AX 2012 R3 CU9.


  1. When we are performing Code Upgrade Checklist on AX 2012 R3CU9, should AX 2012 R3 CU9 run on VAR layer as there customizations that we are moving from AX 2009 SP1 HF8 are done on VAR layer.

  2. Should we paste the VAR AOD files inside STANDARD folder (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Server\MicrosoftDynamicsAx\bin\Application\Appl\Standard) folder ONLY or we should also put that inside OLD folder (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Server\MicrosoftDynamicsAx\bin\Application\Appl\Standard\Old) that we create for code upgrade as per the Upgrade guide.




To answer you queries

  1. Yes that should be good idea

  2. We do not have to move any AOD files to AX6 environment as the upgrade checklist is a part of AX.
