Installing standalone Dynamics AX 2012 R2 - Part 3 (Client and Components)

Imparted from here

Environment Applies to: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit, SQL Server 2012 SP1, Hyper-v

Today we will install Dynamics AX client components. Client installation is quite simple, quick and straight forward, so we will add some more AX components from the list i.e. Developer Tools, .Net Business Connector, Management Utilities, Retail Components and Rapid Start Connector.

In the preceding installations we have already validate and configured the system with required prerequisites, so the system will pass through the testing for the selected components installation.

Lets start by double-clicking the Setup.exe file from the installation root folder and then selecting Client with all of its components, Developer tools with complete list of components, Web services on IIS, .Net Business Connector from Integration components, Management Utilities, Complete Retails Components and the RapidStart Connector component and click Next.

Wizard will run prerequisites validation check for the selected components, resolve the error(s) - if any. When no errors remains, Click Next.

Select the initial display language to use for the client interface from the dropdown and then select the client Installation type i.e. Administrator. This setting determines the workspace that will be displayed with the Microsoft Dynamics AX Client is started. Now click Next.

Select a location for saving configuration settings. Microsoft Dynamics AX clients and some server components require configuration settings to be stored either in the local registry or in a file (.axc). For the installation sake I will save the configuration settings in the local registry. Later after the installation we can also save it to a file (.axc), saving the configuration settings to a file can be shared by multiple clients and components across the network.

If your organization is using Citrix for providing access to their business applications, then saving the configuration settings to a file (.axc) would be the best choice for you. Later I will write quick steps on accessing and configuring AX client through Citrix client.

For now make your selection and click Next.

Enter the name of the computer that is running the AOS instance or specify the AOS instance name and leave the default ports as is if there is no AOS instance installed previously on that machine.

Click Next.

Specify a Network or Domain user account to run AOS service.

Click Next.

Select the website and application pool to use for web services on IIS. Setup will create a virtual directory for Web services under the selected Website and it is recommended to use a dedicated site especially when you move to the production environment. Now click Next.

Specify the service accounts for the AOS instances that you want to use and click Next.

Now enter the domain account and password to use for the Dynamics ERP RapidStart Connector Windows Service and click Next.

Synch Service runs as a windows service and periodically replicate data between Dynamics AX database and store database.

Give the database and service name with the password and click Next.

Provide details to create a store database or offline database and associate the database with the POS system. If you do not configure the store databases during the Setup, you much use the Retail Database Utility to configure the databases after the installation.

Click Next after providing the information.

On the Prerequisite validation results page, resolve any errors. Click Next once the prerequisite validation check is successful.

Setup is now ready to install Dynamics AX selected components. Click Install.

Wait for some time while Setup installs the selected components.

After the installation is completed, click Finish to close the wizard.

And you are done with installing the AX Client and other selected components, review the summary report after closing the setup wizard.
