NoteNote

Only the GLS layer for Turkey was included with the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 product at the time of release. The consolidated GLS layer was released in January 2009, the GLS layer for Eastern Europe and Russia was released in June 2009, and the GLS layer for Israel was released in November 2009.


Caution noteCaution

The GLS layer for Turkey requires Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, whereas the other three GLS layers require Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 Service Pack 1.


You can install only one GLS layer with the SYS layer in a single instance of Microsoft Dynamics AX . You must install each additional GLS layer in a separate instance. If you require countries that are in two separate GLS layers, you need to implement two instances, each with its own SYS layer and the required GLS layer. The following table illustrates configuration of different instances.

Countries required

Microsoft Dynamics AX instances required

Countries covered by the SYS layer.

One instance: SYS

Countries covered by the SYS layer and countries covered by one of the GLS layers. For example, you need countries covered by the SYS layer and Turkey.

One instance: SYS + the required GLS layer (GLS layer for Turkey in this example)

Countries covered by the SYS layer and two GLS layers. For example, you need countries covered by SYS layer, Turkey, and Russia.

Two instances:

  • First instance: SYS + GLS layer for Eastern Europe and Russia

  • Second instance: SYS + GLS layer for Turkey

Countries covered by:

  • The SYS layer

  • Consolidated GLS layer

  • GLS layer for Eastern Europe and Russia

  • GLS layer for Turkey

  • GLS layer for Israel

Four instances:

  • First instance: SYS + consolidated GLS layer

  • Second instance: SYS + GLS layer for Eastern Europe and Russia

  • Third instance: SYS + GLS layer for Turkey

  • Fourth instance: SYS + GLS layer for Israel
