When installing Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 CU3 and at the stage up updating the database models using the the below options I have received the following error “The InstallPath installation path for the 32-bit files cannot be under the folders reserved for the 64-bit files. Enter a different path.”
For some reason the installer checks for a path for a 32-bit component even though we are only installing 64-bit components.
Install the AX Client on that machine and the CU3 installer will stop throwing the error
When restoring a Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 production database to a test database one of the tasks required before attaching and starting an AOS is to change all of the batch jobs to a status of ‘Withhold’
This can be done with the below SQL statement, the database name needs to be updated with the name or the database to be updated.
-- Reset the batch job status to "Withhold" for "Waiting", "Executing" and "Ready" jobs
UPDATE [DynamicsAX].[dbo].[BATCHJOB] SET [STATUS] = 0
WHERE [STATUS] IN (1,2,5)
Remember to change the database name “[DynamicsAX]” in the script above to match your database.
