Maintenance and disaster recovery are two key elements in planning your implementation.

A Microsoft Dynamics AX system, like any other software, requires ongoing monitoring and maintenance. Routine maintenance includes the following:

  • Database backup and recovery

  • Application file backup and recovery

  • Monitoring alerts on specific events generated by infrastructure components, Microsoft Dynamics AX components, or the database

  • Monitoring your infrastructure and applications to ensure expected service-level agreements are met

Determine a maintenance strategy that meets your company's needs before implementing your system. You will need a maintenance strategy for all the environments you are running: production, development, and test.

The following topics are included in this section:

Planning disaster recovery
