10 Steps - After changing domain of AX VM you need to follow

Hi Friends,

Here are the 10 easy steps to follow after changing the domain name of the microsoft dynamics AX VM

  1. Create user (AXAdmin) (or you can use any dedicated user from the domain) and add this user administrator group.
  2. Go to registry and path - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList. In this path you will find the SID for newly created user. Copy this SID for step 3

  1. Copy SID and goto path HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Dynamics\6.0\Setup\DynamicsServer. Here change the Account key value with new user id and SetupUser with the SID which we copied previously.

  1. Login into the Sql server management studio and add newly created user id for all required databases.
  2. In MicrosoftDynamicsAX database open UserInfo table in editing mode and for 'Admin' user update SID, NetworkDomain and NetworkAlis
  3. Open SYSBCPROXYUSERACCOUNT table in editing mode and update SID, NetworkDomain and NetworkAlis
  4. Open Reporting services configuration Manager and change the Service account and Execution account and check report manager url (browse this url and check whether it's showing DynamicsAX folder and reports). Sometimes report server url is throwing encryption key error. Go to reporting services configuration and in Encryption Keys select the option of Deleted encrypted content and select Delete button. Just verify again by browsing report url.
  5. Go to services and locate microsoft dynamics AX service - change the log on property with the new userid
  6. Check the AX Server and client configuration for database connection details if your database server name is changed.
  7. Start the Microsoft Dynamics AX service and Logon to AX.
