Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 White Paper: Multisite Activation

  • Published:
  • Version: 5.0/2009
  • Category: Document
  • Language: English

This paper describes the steps needed to activate the multisite functionality for users who are upgrading from a previous release of Microsoft Dynamics AX.

  • This document walks you through the multisite activation steps.

    To start using the new multisite functionality, users who are upgrading from a previous release of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 must run the multisite activation wizard for each company account to make the necessary changes to the inventory dimension settings and the inventory-related transactions. These changes include:
    • Activating the site and warehouse inventory dimensions in all dimension groups
    • Making the site dimension mandatory on all inventory transactions
    • Updating all transactions with an association to the site

    Multisite functionality is initially inactive when you are upgrading from a previous release so you can set up the master data that is required for the multisite functionality, and to correct any data inconsistencies before generating site-specific transactions.
