      This document walks you through the multisite activation steps.

      To start using the new multisite functionality, users who are upgrading from a previous release of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 must run the multisite activation wizard for each company account to make the necessary changes to the inventory dimension settings and the inventory-related transactions. These changes include:
      • Activating the site and warehouse inventory dimensions in all dimension groups
      • Making the site dimension mandatory on all inventory transactions
      • Updating all transactions with an association to the site

      Multisite functionality is initially inactive when you are upgrading from a previous release so you can set up the master data that is required for the multisite functionality, and to correct any data inconsistencies before generating site-specific transactions.

      • A prerequisite for running the activation is that no inventory dimension records can reference a value for both the site and the warehouse.

      • For users who have a new installation of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, multisite functionality already is activated by default.
