The Model Store has Been Modified &The number sequence for party records is not set

Yesterday I was  preparing an AX enviornment with an upgrade of AX 2012 RTM to CU8 and CU9 and found myself having a strange issue.

I have installed Dynamics AX 2012 RTM with slipstreaming of CU8 and CU9 and imported the home made vertical model on the same.As part of the upgrade you need to complete a checklist including such things as Compile application and detect conflicts.

When I opened the environment first time after importing the model then after upgrading Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 you will get the following dialog upon starting the AX client:


When I have performed the appropriate upgrade actions (AOT compile, code check, CIL compile, synchronize, upgrade scripts), the dialog still might pop up every time you start the client. Selecting “Skip” was not solved this.I run  through all these processes multiple times but everytime i was getting the same dialog popup “The Model Store has Been Modified“.

I installed AX on single server with AX 2012 R3+CU8+CU9.I also compiled application with client and AXBuild for Parallel Compile on AOS of X++ to p-code and  also had synchronized the client via database and via AOT.

I googled multiple places and found few solution to get rid of this dialog popup like

Solution 1 :AXUTIL set /noinstallmode which prevents the AX client initialization checklist

Solution 2:If you can access SQL server open SSMS locate ReleaseUpdateConfiguration Table update the column MinorUpgrade “One” to “Zero”.

Solution 3:

a)Prevent the dialog from appearing by clicking
System administration > Setup > Checklists > Prevent startup of checklist

b)Even after above steps still the pop up is coming then write a job containing this line


I have tried all mentioned option which  helped me get rid of this popup but does not solved my problem.when i started opening user interface(forms) then i started getting another  error message in every module of AX. when i again tried to perform checklist:(

“The number sequence for party records is not set”

Now again I thought to perform Compile,CIL and Synchronize but doesn’t matter how many times I compile, CIL compile or sync (successfully),the error remain same and checklist remains saying that these items still need to be completed.I also spent so many hours to resolve this but no success.

I found an blog which clarified the reason  to solve ‘The number sequence for party records is not set.’. It only appear after when we import the ISV, VAR and USR models.

Root cause:It turns out the offending code was in the ISV model(Campus Nexus) in the startupPost() method on the Info class.our ISV model has a piece of code changes application behavior during startup.

Inside the startupPost() and startup() method was a find method that selects Table SYSSetupLog  which contains status information of initialization checklist and application wasn’t able to update the same for compile,CIL and Synchronization.So Kernel was considering model store is dirty. its little hard to digest.


1.Truncate the SysSetupLog table from SQL using DELETE FROM SYSSETUPLOG).

2.Create the following job and run it inside AX:



This job is saving a record SysCheckList_Upgrade with description status Finished  in Table SysSetupLog because AX 2012 R3 CU9 Data Migration/Upgrade did not correctly set the SysCheckList_Upgrade SysSetupLog entry to Finished, but it is Executed.

3.Restart AX Services and Issue Resolved. 🙂

I will explore little more and will update on same page if found something.for me its solved the problem time being.

Special Thanks for below articles which helped me to solve my issue.for more details please refer below articles links :

Cannot select a record in Students (CMCStudent). Name: 0. The SQL database has issued an error.

I have imported a model in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 CU9 enviornment and model was imported successfully without any error but when i tried to open customized table or form developed in new Model then it throws me an error

Cannot select a record in Students (CMCStudent). Name: 0. The SQL database has issued an error.

when i executed query at SQL of database MicrosoftDynamicsAX then found table CMCStudent does not exists that why AX tries to access table CMCStudent that does not exist in DB yet.

I googled multiple places and everyone suggested to perform “Administration – Periodic – SQL administration – Table Actions – Synchronize database” but its didn’t work for me.


1.Administration – Periodic – SQL administration – Table Actions –Select Table->Generate SQL scripts->…. for creating tables.

it will generate a script that you can use to add the selected tables to the database

2.Execute SQL script generated by step 1 on Dynamics AX database

3.Now restart AX service and try to open form related to table or browse table.You will be able to open table without any error.

SSRS Report Server Settings Validation Error- AX 2012 R3 CU8


I’m trying to validate  report server setup of a client and got the error below
Make sure that SQL Server Reporting Services is configured correctly. Verify the Web Service URL and Report Manager URL configuration in the SQL Reporting Services Configuration Manager.



In reporting services report manager site, i have already granted the AX-Admins AD group as System Administrator under site settings, Home folder settings and DynamicsAX folder with “Browser, Content Manager, DynamicsAXBrowser, My Reports, Publisher, Report Builder” roles.

AX-Admins AD group is also member of administrators in windows. UAC had already been disabled. What did i miss?


After some troubleshooting, it turns out UAC was not turned off. I am running on MS Windows 8.1.

UAC has to be turned off via registry by changing the DWORD “EnableLUA” from 1 to 0 in “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system”.



You will get a notification that a reboot is required. After the reboot, UAC is disabled.

After UAC is disabled, the issue is resolved.

I checked the Error log file “DynamicsSetupLog” and found one error Set-up encountered an error during deployment of the Role Center and Enterprise Portal framework.

Not the most elaborating message to start troubleshooting from. The solution was found through a bit of googling and here is the quick solution to resolve this

Open regedit and find this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions


On SharePoint 2010 environments you can have both 14.0 and 15.0 keys, and the 15.0 key typically has a single “Csom” sybkey.

If this is true for your machine rename the 15.0 key to 15.0_newname and


now try to rerun EP install and it was successfully installed


To avoid any issues revert the key rename after EP install.
