Configuring a Training Environment

There is no better way to start learning Dynamics AX then to just dive in and start setting it up from a blank slate. As you start sculpting your system you are able to see how everything fits together and will also give you the muscle memory that will make you a ninja when it comes to using it in the future.

For traditional ERP systems, this is easier said than done because you need to first get the system installed, and then you don’t know where to even start. Luckily with Azure Hosting, and the pre-built demonstration environments that Microsoft deliver through their Lifecycle services, firing up a new system to test in is a breeze, and once you have a sandbox to play in, creating a new partition that is clean and ready for you to start tinkering in is just as easy.

In this guide we walk through the setup required to deploy a test system, and also configure a blank partition so that you can start learning Dynamics AX.  The topics that are covered in this guide include:

    • Using Azure And Lifecycle Services To Host Your Dynamics AX Test System
    • Creating A New Partition
    • Configuring The System For The First Time
