Please all, exist any best way how to create more environments then ONE at one HW.

I need to run full Ax2012 implementation with EP, workflow, etc.  

Can we use one SQL server for all environment?

Hi Pheg,

Here's my 2 cents.

SQL: You can use one SQL Server instance to host all database.




SSAS: You can use the same SSAS instance, just give the databases different names during deployment.

Also, plan ahead on service accounts setup. I remember using different domain accounts for each AOS side-stepped an issue for me. But that was awhile ago.

Good luck.

kind regards,

Dominic Lee

Are you planning to implement enterprise search? I noticed when you have multiple environment setup for SharePoint 2010 sites, enterprise search is only able to work with one environment due to SharePoint limitation in it's config file. Sorry, I can't find or remember the site which have this information.
