AOS shared application files in Dynamics Ax 2012

We are in the process of migrating from Microsoft Dynamics Ax 2009 to Ax 2012. In our Ax 2009 environment we have 3 AOS's in a load balanced cluster.

AOS 2 & AOS3 are both configured in the server configuration utility to point to a share on AOS1 for application files. I believe this is to ensure that all AOS's use a common application to prevent issue due to version or synchronization.

I do not see this option in the Ax 2012 server config utility, or find details online. Is this no longer recommended/an option in 2012? Can anyone point to a reference detailing the change? Is the issue handed otherwise?

As I'm trying to build out the new environment I would appreciate your expert responses.

i take it you are going to AX2012 R3?, the source code for AX is no longer held in this application folder, but now in a database, so you have two databases ax2012 (data) ax2012_model (code)

where as in AX2009 the code was in the application folder.

so dont worry about sharing this application folder between the AOSs
