"Cannot create a file when that file already exists" during data upgrade from AX 2012 to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

During the data upgrade of an AX 2012 R2 to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations I had the following errors when running the "DataUpgrade-Package" at step 9:

Error during AOS start: Cannot create a file when that file already exists.

In my case, restarting the environment hosted on Azure and restarting the step helped.


DuplicateKeyException in table LogisticsLocationRole during data upgrade from AX 2012 to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

During the data upgrade of an AX 2012 R2 to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations I had the following errors when running the "DataUpgrade-Package" at step 8:

Infolog diagnostic message: 'Cannot create a record in Roles (LogisticsLocationRole). Role: Stabile Organisation, Stable organization. The record already exists.' on category 'Error'. 08/20/2019 14:52:12: Application configuration sync failed.

This was caused by two records in the LogisticsLocationRole table that were created in the source environment (AX 2012 R2) by hotfix KB4048614. Interestingly, this hotfix is exactly the one that should be applied before upgrading from AX 2012 R2 to D365.

In my scenario, I was able to use the statement below to delete the records and successfully restart step 8.

where type = 104 or type = 105

Display line in bold in a grid

To display a line bold in a grid, you can overwrite the method displayOption() of the FormDataSource:

    MyTable myTable = _record as MyTable;
