Ever wanted to be able to see records before committing them? I bet you have. It is not possible in Dynamics AX, but you can do it in SQL Server Management Studio. It is really easy as well.
Start Management Studio and connect to the SQL Server. Now navigate to Tools -> Options. From there, Query Execution -> SQL Server -> Advanced. There is a setting called SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL. Set it to READ UNCOMMITED. Click OK button and you are done.
Just remember that unless you always want to see uncommited data, it is good to reset this setting once done.

If you get a dialog saying the object is already checked out by another user you can mark that line and a button emerges to take over the object. However we have experienced a few times that the first user to check it out claims to have lost changes, while the new user takes control of the object.
There is another way to do it. Go to the DB and locate the table SYSVERSIONCONTROLMORPHXLOCKTABLE. It holds all the locks and you can simply replace the userId in the CREATEDBY column for the object which you wish to take over the control for.

If you want to get rid of the annoying login prompt when starting AX if you have EP installed. Follow this two step solution:
- Start Server Manager. Go to Local Server and IE Enhanced Security Configuration. Turn it off. You might have to log out and in again for this to take effect.
- Start an AX client. Go to SysAdmin\Setup\EP\Web sites. Copy the address at the bottom of the form. Open it in a browser. There is a button for it in the right part of the form. To the top left, click Site Actions and Site Access. Add your user and give it access to the site.
Now you can open AX without getting harassed by a login prompt each time.
If you try to start the AOS service and get Error 5: Access is denied you should check that the service account is Local Admin. We have had installations the work fine but after a modelstore update run into problems and it was because this. Why the service was allowed to start before the update is unclear but should be seen more as pure luck. The account should be part of Local Admin.
