I was asking Microsoft if there will be a version of Axapta 3.0 that will work with SQL 2005.
Here is what I got today as answer:
"Right now what I can tell you is that Axapta 4.0 will run with MS SQL Server 2005.
We can not confirm that Axapta 3.0 will work with MS SQL Server 2005 at this point in time.
Technically it is possible to set up MS SQL Server 2005 so it operates like MS SQL Server 2000 in theory this makes it possible to use Axapta 3.0 with this database but we would need to make the tests necessary internally before we officially can make any confirmations."
What makes me curious about it is: SQL 2005 will be released in autumn 2005 (october?), Axapta 4.0 will be released in Q2/2006 (meaning July 2006).
So, there will be a time period of 6-8 months where Microsoft will have to tell new Axapta customers that they cannot use SQL2005.
Just imagine a new Axapta customer that wants to start running Axapta March 1st, 2006. He will not be able to run Axapta with SQL2005.
Don't you also think that's kind of strange from the sales point of view?
