EntityStore – AX 2012 R3 – DMFIsInEntityDBPublishAndPublishAll object not initialized

I’ve seen this error a couple of times in the past month or so, and I’ve also noted that some people have asked about it on the Internet, too.


I’ve just finished working on a case with a customer where we were able to reproduce this issue on a VM.

We found that patching the kernel components resolved the issue.

If you are experiencing this error when you are trying to publish an entity to a local or remote EntityStore database, I suggest that you patch your kernel components and try again.

You can download the latest kernels from LCS here:


Alternatively, you can check the kernels that are available on this overview page:
