Permissions for Configuration Manager

When trying the new Configuration Manager for AX 2012, I got an error when exporting a stored configuration. The message in LCS said only that an unknown error occurred, which obviously wasn’t very helpful. Fortunately I checked the event log on my server with AX and immediately found the problem.

There was a log entry from source “LcsSystemDiagnostics” saying “Access denied to method create in class DMFDefinitionGroupService”. Of course, I forgot to set permissions for service operations for the system diagnostics service account.

That we can easily find the cause of such issues is a very good news. Nicely done.
