Current customers using Oracle database as their AX transactional database will be forced to switch to Microsoft SQL Server. It should be facilitated by Oracle to Microsoft SQL Server Data Migration Assistant for Microsoft Dynamics AX (PartnerSource link) – it allows to migrate AX4/AX2009 databases; conversion of Axapta 3 database is supported as a part of upgrade to AX2009
Overview of the tool from Partner source
The Oracle to Microsoft SQL Server Data Migration tool helps customers on Microsoft Dynamics AX with an Oracle database to migrate to a Microsoft SQL Server database. It supports Microsoft® Business Solutions-Axapta® 3.0, now part of Microsoft Dynamics®, Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009.
For Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, it supports migration of database on same Microsoft Dynamics AX version i.e. Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 on Oracle to Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 on SQL Server. For Microsoft Business Solutions-Axapta, it supports upgrade from Microsoft Business Solutions-Axapta to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 as part of the upgrade. This framework is a replacement for the AXDBUpgrade step in the upgrade. Rest of the steps remain the same and need to be fully followed thru for complete upgrade as well as data migration.
The Oracle to Microsoft SQL Server Data Migration Tool provides the ability to multi thread the data transfer, while doing the necessary transformations. It is important to note that the toolset does not support not standard table migration (Tables that are not on the AOT). The toolset execution should be followed with rigorous testing for data validation as well as migration quality
