OLAP Cube Manual deployment and Error resolution with limited licenses and Config keys [Dynamics AX]

Friends, recently I was involved in OLAP Manual Cube deployment for a client with limited license keys and config keys

OLAP Cube Manual deployment and Error resolution with limited licenses and Config keys. I have created a document which details about the error messages and resolutions while manual deployment.

Functionality in Microsoft Dynamics AX can be turned on or off depending on license and configuration keys. A license key controls the modules that are available to you. For example, if you have the Additional Modules license, you can use the Human Resources I and Human Resources II modules. License keys must be purchased.

A configuration key controls the functionality that is available to you within a module. For example, if you have the Recruiting (HRMMangementRecruting) configuration key, you can use the recruiting forms and functionality in the Human Resources II module.

The default OLAP cubes that are provided with Microsoft Dynamics AX require full license and configuration keys. When you turn off license or configuration keys, or when some keys are missing, data and functionality in Microsoft Dynamics AX is removed.

As a result: Cubes cannot be processed (because they cannot access the data they were designed to retrieve. This document will help to resolve new errors which are not listed in the ConfigureDefaultCubes.pdf given by Microsoft.

We can use The Default Cube Advisor Tool for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 that generates a list of Cube and Role Center elements that are not valid for the specific license and configuration keys you are using.
