DIXF – Double entities in R3 CU10

Any version prior to CU10 has about 238 entities. AX 2012 R3 – CU10 doubles the number of DIXF entities (~467 entities). These new entities are in areas such as

1. Accounts payable, 10
2. Accounts receivable, 13
3. Cash and bank management, 7
4. General ledger, 23
5. Human resources, 27
6. Inventory and Warehouse management, 19
7. Organization administration, 27
8. Procurement and sourcing, 27
9. Product information management, 8
10. Production control, 17
11. Project management and accounting, 27
12. Sales and marketing, 4
13. System administration, 6
14. Travel and expense, 11

If your version is not R3 CU10, you can still apply KB 3061216 to support new DIXF entities. After applying the hot fix and you still don’t see new entities, you might delete them all and reopen the Target entities form

How to find out all the AX KBs installed on your machine

A client asked me today how to find out all the KBs  were applied to one of its environments. Normally I would say go to “About Microsoft Dynamics AX” then “Show installed models”. However, in some cases not all KBs are shown in this form.

Here is another fine way you can find out :

Control Panel > Programs and Features > View installed updates

Check Installed Models Script

I’m working in an environment with 3 different AOSs. I have to maintain many models and hotfixes. Therefore, I need to find a clever way to determine whether or not a specific hotfix was installed on an environment

Download

Use the attached script,  and then execute it in AX Management Shell and follow the prompts.

clip_image002

$found = $false
$server = read-host "Enter the database server that hosts your modelstore database (Default is localhost)"
if ($server -eq ''){ $server='localhost'}

$db = read-host "Enter the name of your AX model store database (Default is MicrosoftDynamicsAx)"
if ($db -eq ''){$db = 'MicrosoftDynamicsAx'}

$kb = read-host "Which KB are you attempting to install?"

while ($kb -eq '')
{
   $kb = read-host "You must enter a Kb to search for, try again (enter a KB now)" 
}

$models = Get-AxModel -server $server -database $db

foreach ($model in $models)
{
    $manifest = Get-AXModelManifest -Server $server -Database $db -model $model.Name 
    $details = $manifest.Details
    if (Select-String -Pattern $kb -InputObject $details)
    {
        $found = $true
        $manifest.Name
        $details
    }
}

if (!$found)
{    
    "KB " + $kb + " was not found in any installed model"
}
