[Update to the below blog post as of August 2nd 2017. Demo environments for Dynamics AX 2012 R3 are now available for deployment; however, moving forward we will only be allowing the creation of a demo environment based on the current Cumulative Update, so older CU’s will no longer be available as demo VMs.]
Two weeks back, Microsoft had published a blog post stating that deploying Dynamics AX 2012 R3 environments through Lifecycle Services has been temporarily disabled in response to WannaCrypt Ransomware. The system maintenance activity initiated to patch all AX 2012 R3 VHD images has now been completed with the exception of the Demo topology and environment deployments through Lifecycle Services has resumed. We will update the blog after the Demo topology has been patched.
Our priority is the security and health of your Dynamics AX environments.
