Yet another blog for Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. This blog primarily targets the technical readers. I will be sharing my experience with Dynamics AX using code snippets, errors, and solutions, Tips, and tricks.

Ax 2009 disk full error
This problem only seems to occur on 64-bit operating systems and it can be very tricky to pin down the cause....
It occurs on both Terminal servers and Citrix Servers seemingly at random, we've noticed that the most consistent way to reproduce it (for this implementation at least) is by trying to generate a Customer Account Statement, but it can occur also occur when using Select Criteria, trying to generate a report, or when trying to view the permissions tree in a user group
Which is strange since the disk isn't full on the AOS server or the Citrix/Terminal server
There is a workaround which is to run the Ax client as an Administrator but that can be a major security flaw and isn't a long term solution
There's a registry setting which tries to create a temporary sub-directory each time a user connects to a Terminal/Citrix server.
The problem is that when this temporary sub-directory gets created, it doesn't appear that the Ax client has access to it
So while the user may have the correct access to the %temp% directory within their Citrix/Terminal server user profile, they don't have access to the %temp%\1 or %temp%\27 or %temp%\942 sub-directory (the exact number varies and is rarely the same)
The solution is to set the registry on the terminal server to not create these sub-directories within the temp folder and just to use the main %temp% directory instead
How do you do that? Well I'm glad you asked, all it takes is a little registry key:
