Click Inventory management > Setup > Inventory and warehouse management parameters. Click RFID, and then click Synchronization.

Use this form to change the time for the last synchronization between Microsoft Dynamics AX and the middleware server.


If you have already synchronized transactions once, transactions will be duplicated if you set the time back.

Your company has three servers, and the connection to server 1 was temporarily lost. Now the connection works again. You can now exclude server 2 and server 3 from the system, and set the time for the latest synchronization back to immediately before server 1 lost the connection. You will retrieve the transactions from server 1 when you synchronize. Remember to set the time back again before you include server 2 and server 3.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.



General tab

View information about the last synchronization.




Enter the date and time of the last synchronization.


Because Microsoft Dynamics AX requires data to be in chronological order, you must synchronize the time between servers. Synchronization is controlled by having all middleware servers use the Windows Time service and the same time server. The Windows Time service is not controlled from within Microsoft Dynamics AX.
