Moving the AX App and DB onto a new VM

I’ve had a lot of questions about what to do with the previous VM when we release a new VM. This has to do with the time field and partners spend on installing ISV solutions into AX, configuring data etc. So I’ve put together these notes to help you move the AX application and database from a previous VM onto the new VM.

In this case moving from RTM or Refresh1 onto the Refresh 2 VM.

The idea here is that you can setup a side by side installation of the AX application from a previous image onto the new image. This way you can have the best of both worlds the new configuration that we ship on the updated image and the work that you have done. This saves you having to re-do your work or switching between VMs.
