If you ever started working on the image downloaded from the Microsoft PartnerSource of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, you might face a trouble while trying to explore Role Centers or Enterprise Portals.


This error is due to the configuration setup in the AX2012 image that let’s DNS points to contoso.com domain. What has to be done is to redirect that domain to the current machine (which is the same virtual machine you’re using).

To do so you must add a loop back IP to your” Hosts” file. You can think of that files a Rolodex for your computer. Its where a computer looks first to translate the URL of a website into a numerical IP address that it can actually use. You can find the “Hosts” file in: “C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\Hosts”.

To fix the issue, open the Hosts file a notepad and add this line to the end of the file:

127.0.0.1       dynamicsax.contoso.com

In the beginning, you might encounter the below error… but it will be fixed with “refresh”:

Everyone in the Dynamics filed remembers very well how hard it was to get into the track of any Microsoft Dynamics producttechnically or functionally. Apart from missing of  learning resources, qualified consultants were also missed.

A great initiative that we always missed since so long time is now live in Saudi Arabia. Dynamics Academy is an academic initiative that was taken to support the Microsoft Dynamics community in Saudi Arabia with academic programs in all kinds with Microsoft Dynamics AX, GP, NAV and CRM.

From its early days, Dynamics Academy has put an objective in mind that is helping  Microsoft Dynamics vendors and clients in the region to educate their resources and put them on the right track to increase the success probabilities. The academy is seriously taking the responsibility of such education programs by starting with fresh individuals who have no experience in ERP, CRM, nor any business solution implementation even. Those individuals will be ready to get involved as functional and technical consultants in junior levels in Dynamics AX, GP, NAV and CRM implementations.

This initiative was taken by three contributors from the community: Ahmad Maghraby (CPIM, CSCP, PMP, MCT),  Ahmad Yakan (MCT, MCBSP) and I.
