Connecting Dynamics AX to a Specific AOS Instance

by | Updated August 15, 2016 | Dynamics AX

When working in a Dynamics AX environment with multiple AOS instances there are times when you want to connect an AX client to a specific AOS for troubleshooting and/or testing purposes.   To bypass any load balancing create a client configuration file set up to connect to a specific AOS instance using a configuration command setting.

  1. Create a new AX Client Configuration file using the Microsoft Dynamics AX Configuration Utility.
  2. In the “Configuration command to run at kernel startup” field enter the following command
    1. -internal –loadbalance=0
  3. Save the file.
  4. Launch Dynamics AX using this new file.

When using this configuration file to launch Dynamics AX it will connect to the AOS instance that you have configured under the Connection tab and bypass any AX load balancing that is set up.

 

AX Configuration Utility

 

Refer to Dynamics AX 2012 Client Configuration Commands for more information on using configuration commands to set options that are used when the AX client starts.

    Good Morning Craig,
    I have setup the config file as above setting but it is not behaving as per the specific instance. Please give some suggestion on it.

    Good morning:

    I’d be happy to help you, would you be able to explain with a little more detail of what is and what isn’t working. To be more specific, are you getting an error, what are you seeing versus what you expect to see.

    Thank you,
    Brandon Carmichael
