If you are trying to install a deployable package via command line using the AXUpdateInstaller.exe devinstall command like is shown in the Microsoft documentation and get this error:

Here are the steps you can take to fix this issue, run the following commands:

  • AXUpdateInstaller.exe generate -runbookid=”OneBoxDev” -topologyfile=”DefaultTopologyData.xml” -servicemodelfile=”DefaultServiceModelData.xml” -runbookfile=”OneBoxDev-runbook.xml”
    • This command generates the runbook that will execute the installation of the deployable package

  • AXUpdateInstaller.exe import -runbookfile=OneBoxDev-runbook.xml
    • This command will ‘load’ the runbook and make it available to install

  • AXUpdateInstaller.exe execute -runbookid=OneBoxDev
    • This command actually runs the the runbook we generated and loaded in the previous steps

If everything above is successful, the deployable package installation will start

  • Note: This process will take some time, especially on the database sync step
