An error occurred invoking the Report Definition Customization Extension (RDCE).

I ran across this SSRS report past few weeks and had a hard time to solve the issue. I could deploy and view all the report but one report. It kept giving me this error

  • An error occurred invoking the Report Definition Customization Extension (RDCE). (rsRdceInvalidCacheOptionError)
    • Fatal exception performing AXRDCE transformation step. The report cannot be rendered. Please contact your system administrator.

By goggling, all of searching lead me to this page or this page

I thought i found the answer, but it deviated me even further from the solution.

The following didn’t work:

– Adding report to the “Report Deployment Settings” – the same error was thrown when deploying the report

– SSRS restart

– Deleting AUC and regenerating WCF config.

– Stop/Start Reporting Services

– Delete the report and redeploy

– Create a new config file

– Clear user usage

– Monitor event viewer

– Monitor database

– Use SSRS diagnostic tool to gather information about enviroment

Basically, I tried everything i can to get this to work but no matter what I tried the issue still persisted

One thing to keep in mind report, query  has never been modified. I decided to take different approach by looking at the report itself from VS perspective. I started seeing lights at the end of the tunnel. Recompiling the report in VS, i collected additional information. When I looked at data source, I found out the report was using a query. Looking at the query and tracking all of its datasources, I found out one of the table was missing an index. I removed the bad index field from the index, and reran the report and it worked like a charm

Make sure disk space is available before generating CIL.

I was trying to generate a full CIL and kept getting this error

The CIL generator found errors and could not save the new assembly.”

I took the follow steps in order to attempt to fix the issue

1> Restart AOS

2> Regenerate full CIL

I kept getting the same error again. and errors in few other classes. After I compiled the classes individually, the errors went away but when i generated CIL, it came back again. It was really frustrated. I decided something else must have caused this. This time i took different approach

1> Stop AOS

2> Delete all of the source in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Server\MicrosoftDynamicsAX\bin\XppIL directory

3> Start AOS

4> Perform a full compile and this time i got an additional message “There is not enough space on the disk”


After verifying the hard drive, indeed there isn’t enough space in C drive


Problem was solved after i freed up more space

Map:createFromXML parses incorrecly in IL mode

I need to serialize a Map and convert this back to Map when it reaches server side.  This piece of code works fine if running in XPP but fails in IL. I discovered this bug when i was trying to build code to extract trial balance and pass in dimension ranges map. Since this code has to be run in batch, i need to serialize this Map. I’m able to simplify this issue to the class below.

class MapTest


public server static void main(Args _args)
XppILExecutePermission permission = new XppILExecutePermission();



public static server container run(container _con)
XmlDocument xDoc;
Map dimRangeMap = new Map(Types::Int64, Types::String);
SerializedDimensionRange    serializedDimensionRanges;
dimRangeMap.insert(5637144583, “40000..69999”);
serializedDimensionRanges = dimRangeMap.xml();
xDoc = new XmlDocument();
dimRangeMap = new Map(Types::Int64, Types::String);
dimRangeMap = Map::createFromXML(xDoc.root() as XmlNode);
return conNull();


Hope Microsoft will solve this kernel bug soon

How to kill a blocking session

A user can’t log into AX. After looking at online users (System Administrator > Users > Online Users), you will see a user with status “Ending – Blocked”. This is because AX locks the user session when there was a problem in processing the transaction

Steps :
1> On the User Online screen we can see which userID and which session has status is Ending –Block


2> Go to the SQL server, look into SYSCLIENTSESSIONS table to see all user sessions.


WHERE        (USERID = ‘Admin’)

3> Delete exactly the line with USERID and SESSIONID of that user
