  3. Richard says:

    Is there a upgrade path from GP 10 to GP 2013? And if so, is there a upgrade cost?

  4. David Musgrave says:

    Hi Richard

    There is always an upgrade path. 🙂

    For GP 10 you need to be on the latest Service Pack first. Exact details are posted on the Support and Services blog and on CustomerSource.

    As for costs… You need to be current on your annual enhancement plan to be able to obtain new registration keys from Microsoft.

    You also need to think about planning, test upgrades, customizations and third party products, infrastructure, consulting fees, etc. Please discuss with your partner.

    Is there a technical demonstration or virtual machine for GP 2013 yet or planned?

  6. Ron,

    the Marketing Team is currently working on a Virtual Machine for demonstration use.  This virtual machine will be available only for partners and when available, posted on PartnerSource for download.

    Hi David,

    I'm currently testing Dynamics GP 2013 on SQL Server 2012 preparping for the Dynamics GP 2013 upgrades.

    I couldn't find a definitive answer to the question "does Dynamics GP 2013 supports SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn and/or High Availablity Groups"?

    Has this functionality been tested and confirmed as supported by Microsoft in case the infrastructure is proposed for future upgrades or new client?

  11. Hi Leh,

    the new HADRON feature of SQL 2012 is an improved version of clustering allowing you to define "high availability" groups across SQL Server instances in different locations.  From the Dynamics GP perspective, the same rules with clustering still apply and those are:

    1. Ensure that the ODBC DSN is connecting to the Virtual Network Name of the cluster and not the active (primary) node of SQL Server.

    2. Dynamics GP only supports and functions in a Active-Passive node only.  No updating, inserts or deletes of data on the secondary nodes can happen. Select functionality on the secondary nodes is allowable.

    3. As with any SQL enviroment, Dynamics GP contains two application required temp table that reside in TempDB (Dex_Lock and Dex_Session). Any time the SQL Server fails over, these objects will be recreated new the new, active SQL Server which may cause an interuption in client processing.

    4. As for supporting HADRON or the Dynamics GP development group testing against HADRON, we have not performed any additional test against this new SQL Server feature as the same clustering rules still apply. As for support for HADRON, questions regarding the setting up, configuration and use of this feature is supported by the SQL Server team, not the Dynamics GP support team.

    Hope this helps and thanks!
