A configuration is a group of startup and tracing settings for an Application Object Server (AOS) instance that is stored in the registry hive HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dynamics Server\4.0\ AOSinstancename\ Confignameor in a configuration file. You may want to create new configurations and configuration files, save, or load configurations to support:

  • Moving from a development environment to a production environment. Change the application directory that an AOS instance points to, the database, and whether a system allows debugging.

  • Tuning Microsoft Dynamics AX. Save a configuration with the defaults, and then change compression, database tuning, and tracing settings one at a time, and save them as different configurations. Run Microsoft Dynamics AX with each different configuration, and evaluate how it performs.
