Model deployment AX 2012

Hi,

Recently I came across a very nice article "Model deployment among Multiple AOS Instance". Below script enables to deploy Model and perform all steps automatically like Starting service, application compilation, sync etc.

Steps:
  
- Load AX Management scripts 
 - Stop the AOS
 - Clean up (delete layers)
 - Import new ax model
 - Start AOS
 - Do a sync
 - Do a compile
 - Do a CIL generation
 - You can not test your code

Script :
param(
    [string] $MODELPATH = $(throw "Model path required"),
    [string] $AXCONFIGPATH = $(throw "AX configuration file required"),
    [string] $MODELTODEPLOY = "PCGModel",
    [string] $DOAXSYNC = "y", 
    [string] $DOAXCOMPILE = "y", 
    [string] $LAYERSTOCLEAN = "",
    [long] $AXIMPORTTIMEOUT = 300000,
    [long] $AXSYNCTIMEOUT = 1800000,
    [long] $AXCOMPILETIMEOUT = 10800000
    )

& 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\ManagementUtilities\Microsoft.Dynamics.ManagementUtilities.ps1'

if(!(Test-Path $MODELPATH))
{
    Throw ("Error: Source path " + $MODELPATH + "does not exist")
}
if(!(Test-Path $AXCONFIGPATH))

    Throw ("Error: Could not find configuration file " + $AXCONFIGPATH)

# Make sure we're on the right server

# Get the log path
$logPath = [string] (type $AXCONFIGPATH | Select-String "logDir")
$logPath = ($logPath.split(","))[2]
$logPath = $env:UserProfile + '\Microsoft\Dynamics Ax\Log\'

# Get the AOS port from the configuration (aos name is ignored when connecting, so port is the only valid identifier)
$aosPort = [string] (type $AXCONFIGPATH | Select-String "aos2")
$aosPort = ($aosPort.split(","))[2]
$aosPort = ($aosPort.split(":"))[1]

# Open the list of servers running on this machine
$aosRegistryPath = "hklm:`\SYSTEM`\CurrentControlSet`\services`\Dynamics Server`\6.0"
$aosServers = Get-Item $aosRegistryPath
$aosServers = $aosServers.GetSubKeyNames()
