Maintenance mode - Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations LBD

Hi All,

In order to turning maintenance mode on or off in an Dynamics 365 FO LBD (aka On-premise) implementation, you have to:

  1. Open Sql Server Management Studio
  2. Point to the AXDB database
  3. Raise the following command, update SQLSYSTEMVARIABLES SET VALUE = 1 where PARM = 'CONFIGURATIONMODE'
  4. Restart the Service Fabric service against all AOSs Node
  5. When you've completed your maintenance mode activities, repeat steps 3 and 4 but set the value to 0 in step 3.
This is a mandatory step if you have to change the License configuration entries.

Till soon!
