We recently discoverred that our production AOS servers are running different versions of AX; 1500.3240 on some, and 1500.2985 on others; so all have RU5, but some have additional hotfixes. The same situation is true of our AX Clients.
I found that you can view a list of installed hotfixes via the SysHotfixManifest class. Sadly exporting this from the AOT and comparing the resultant XPOs from each server showed the same results. That's unsurprising as all AOSes look at files on a common application directory.
Do you know of a way that I can view which hotfixes are installed, including those applied to binaries? Is there anyway to determine this from the build number?
Sadly we don't have the option of applying RU6 & 7 immediately to all servers to bypass the issue as this will require regression testing.
I suspect that copying the binaries between servers would resolve the issue, but that's risky and also I'm not sure which version's correct - i.e. though some servers have a later version I don't know what the hotfix is / what potential impact this could have. Part of the benefit of knowing which hotfixes were missing from some servers is this may help to explain a number of intermittent issues we've been seeing.
Thanks in advance,
I ended up exporting the SysHotfixManifest to an XPO, then openning this in Excel and using various string functions to strip out a list of the KB numbers.
I then did the same with the data available on the link below to get a list of hotfixes mapped to the rollup / sp in which they're contained and the description of the hotfix.
Finally I did a vlookup from the manifest's kb# to the lists to pull back rollup and description info for what's in our environment, filtered out anything on SP1 / RUs1-5, then was left with just the interesting bits.
Can you please CRM 4.0 Diag tool to colect the installed hotfix information:blogs.msdn.com/.../crmdiagtool4-for-microsoft-crm-4-0-available-now-on-the-emea-dynamics-crm-support-blog.aspx
Sadly that tools seems to be designed for Dynamics CRM; my issue is with Dynamics AX. I've had a play with the tool in case it was compatible with both but I get an "object is not associated with an instance of an object" exception. Is the source code for the app available? I may be able to port it to something that works for AX, or at least glean a little more info about where this information's held?
Have you tried looking in Control panel->Programs & Features-> View installed updates on the AOS servers. There usually is a KB number attached to each individual update you apply to the AOS.
sadly when I go to that screen no updates show; i.e. a progress bar shows up behind the address bar whilst the system searches for updates, but then nothing's returned for any program.
