Dynamics AX 4.0 sp2, Windows 2008 R2, SQL server 2008 R2

I have been testing an installation of Dynamics AX with the following setup:

SQL server
Windows 2008 R2 datacenter – 64 bit
MS SQL 2008 R2

AOS server
Windows 2008 R2 datacenter – 64 bit

Both servers are virtual and are running in a Microsoft Hyper V environment. The setup is not supported officially by several threads indicates that AX 4.0 will run fine in a virtual environment.

According to the Dynamics AX 4.0 system requirements this setup should be supported. The Dynamics AX kernel needs to be upgraded though according to the KB article 944115 (MBS customer source).

I did the upgrade and the AOS started fine. But when synchronizing the data dictionary the AOS crashed. I did a lot of investigation but I really never found an answer. Finally I found the kernel rollup in KB article 981007. I installed this kernel rollup and now the test installation is running smoothly on the setup.
