hi Guys,

My company want to use AX for our accounting system and we have MSDN subscription, I installed a new server and imported the license file, but it looks like expiring by the end of year. What will happen when the license expire? Will I get a new license file when I renew my MSDN?

Your company cannot use the MSDN license for AX as an accounting system I believe, the licensing terms are only for dev and test, not production - msdn.microsoft.com/.../cc150618.aspx

I suggest you talk to you Microsoft Partner Account Manager and get a partners license, if you cannot then you need to purchase a license officially to not be breaking your MSDN T&C's (I believe)

Normally, there are 2 places where you can access the license files, PartnerSource (Voice or Presales demo) and MSDN. I would advice you to check on those sites with any updates.

Do you know what do I need to get a partner license? We are gold partner right now, is that good enough?

If we have to purchase, what will be the price?

I'll suggest you talk to your Partner Account Manager since your company is Gold partner status and there should be a dedicated partner manager to your organization. They can walk you through the enrolment process, alternative this is the link you can explore mspartner.microsoft.com/.../microsoft-dynamics-erp.aspx
