To assist our partners and customers in their new Microsoft Dynamics AX deployments, the SE team started releasing roll-ups for Microsoft Dynamics  AX 2009 RTM and SP1 platforms. The roll-ups aim to provide an easy way of deploying Microsoft Dynamics AX with the latest hotfixes on a given Service Pack level. The first roll-up packages for AX2009 RTM and SP1 have been available on Partner Source and Customer Source since mid-March and we have been seeing hundreds of downloads. Please find the roll-up KB articles below:

There will be one roll-up package for each Service Pack level. Each roll-up will carry all previously released hotfixes and updates up to one month prior to the release of the roll-up. Each roll-up will be cumulative and will not require the presence of the previous roll-up on the system. The roll-ups will also carry the tax updates that have been released previously.

 

The roll-up package will contain both a cumulative kernel update and a cumulative application update. Although there is no dependency between these two updates, we recommend that you install both of the updates together. The roll-up will be installed on P-layers (i.e. SYP and GLP) and update the SYS layer as well as the GLS layer that is installed on the system.

 

Moving forward, the roll-ups will be announced at least one month prior to the release date. Currently, SE team is working on the plans for roll-up 2.
