Scenario: Upgrade a country-specific or region-specific system [AX 2012]

Updated: April 30, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3

This scenario applies to systems that contain country-specific or region-specific features that were previously located in the GLS layer. It describes an upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 or Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2. Note that this country-specific or region-specific scenario requires a type of source-to-target upgrade. In-place upgrade of country-specific or region-specific features to AX 2012 R2 is not supported, nor is source-to-target upgrade to earlier releases of AX 2012.

For information about the upgrade paths that are supported for country-specific or region-specific upgrades to AX 2012 R2 or AX 2012 R3, see Supported upgrade paths.

Before you upgrade Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 and AX 2009 systems that have country-specific or region-specific (GLS) support, you must install additional XPO files on the source system. These files provide forms and functionality that are required to preprocess country-specific or region-specific data. For a list of the available XPO files and their applicability, see Install optional upgrade XPO files.

On systems that include country-specific or region-specific functionality, the Preprocessing upgrade checklist includes additional tasks. The following table includes links to topics that explain each task and provide instructions for completing them.

Except for the tasks in this table, the procedures for country-specific or region-specific upgrades are identical to the procedures for source-to-target upgrades. For information about the procedures for source-to-target upgrades, see Scenario: Upgrade AX 4.0 or AX 2009 to AX 2012 (all versions).
