i am going to deploy d365 for operations on primroses but client need to replace the SQL cluster to be standalone SQL installation is this will the installation ?if not if we decided later to active the cluster is this will cause an issue????
I've not installed it on a standalone SQL server myself, but the Microsoft Fasttrack engineer has done so successfully in his lab environment. Therefore it can be done.
However keep in mind that in a PROD environment this is not a supported configuration, and will not be supported by Microsoft. Besides that, it's also not resilient.
So for non-production environments you should be able to use a single SQL server.
Thanks for your reply,
i want to know if where i can find this FASTtrack engineer labs to see how it's done so i can know in my case it will be success or not
Apologies if my reply was unclear.
The fasttrack engineer had his own servers set up for D365FO LBD. I believe they were hosted on Azure, but they were ordinary VMs.
It was not a product or a download (besides the D365FO application of course).
Hope that helps.
So you suggest to go for installation without SQL cluster?
You can install D365FO LBD for sandbox on single node SQL, but this is not supported for Production environment.
Ax as a application which is using SQL server, it does not care about whether SQL is standalone or clustered. All it knows is the hostname/ip and port to connect to SQL.
So from the aspect of tech, you can do this. But from the aspect of business, you should not use standalone as it's not safe.
If you want to move from standalone to cluster, you have to setup cluster and move current databases to new cluster.
You can use a single SQL as well just provide the FQDN of that machine where ever you need to enter the configuration
For e.g.: <servername>.<domainname>.<com/net/etc.>
