Today Microsoft released a new cumulative update for Microsoft Dynamics AX2012 R2, named Cumulative Update 6 (KB2850972). The version number of this release is 6.2.1000.1437.
During preparation of a presentation about the new Data Import/Export Framework I came across an issue on the Customer entity when using AX as source data format. When the staging data is filled from the target some address fields (most of them) are filled in the wrong fields of the staging table.
Data Import/Export Framework replaces Data Migration Framework (beta). Some exiting new features are added within this release. It is now possible to have AX as the datasource. Also new is the possibility to export data. I also noticed that it is possible to have a table or composite entity as entity type within the target entities.
During an implementation we encountered issues where the AOS of AX2012 (CU3) was consuming a lot of memory. At first we thought the machines needed more memory. The extra memory was consumed as well and no memory was released. Not even when user logged out of the system. Investigation was very frustrating…
This blog will inform you about the Data Migration Framework of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. This is a tool which is currently in bèta and available on Informationsource.
