Change license configuration in Dynamics 365 F&O


In today’s article, We will see how to change the license configuration in Dynamics 365 F&O. When the license configuration is on maintenance mode then we cannot change the license configuration however there is an option to make this happen.

Note : While maintenance mode is on, only system administrators and users who have the Maintenance mode user role can sign in to the system

Navigate to System administration > Setup > License configuration

By default, the license configuration is set in maintenance mode.

We can enable or disable license configuration in two ways.

  1. SQL squery
  2. Command

SQL query

  • Login to the development machine
  • Sign in with SSMS as an administrator and switch to the AXDB database, and run the following command.
update SQLSYSTEMVARIABLES SET VALUE = 1 where PARM = 'CONFIGURATIONMODE'
  • Restart the World Wide Web Publishing Service and reset IIS.
  • After the service is restarted, the system will be in maintenance mode.
  • Now, you can enable license key and click on Yes
  • When you’ve completed your maintenance mode activities then set the value to 0 and Restart the W3 and reset IIS.

Command

You can turn on maintenance mode locally by running the following command.

J:\AosService\PackagesLocalDirectory\Bin\Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Deployment.Setup.exe --metadatadir J:\AosService\PackagesLocalDirectory --bindir J:\AosService\PackagesLocalDirectory\Bin --sqlserver . --sqldatabase axdb --sqluser axdbadmin --sqlpwd ********* --setupmode maintenancemode --isinmaintenancemode true

You can turn off maintenance mode locally by running the following command.

J:\AosService\PackagesLocalDirectory\Bin\Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Deployment.Setup.exe --metadatadir J:\AosService\PackagesLocalDirectory --bindir J:\AosService\PackagesLocalDirectory\Bin --sqlserver . --sqldatabase axdb --sqluser axdbadmin --sqlpwd ********* --setupmode maintenancemode --isinmaintenancemode false

After running the command, you will want to restart the World Wide Web Publishing Service to reset IIS. The system will then be out of maintenance mode.
