New NAV2015 Image on Microsoft Azure

Finally, we got a new NAV release as image on Microsoft Azure Gallery. This is Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 CU3. I expected it earlier, because GP 2015 has already existed. But, OK this is not so late. blog-1 Now, all of you who want to test Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015, can do it on Microsoft Azure VM. And, I am really happy, because it is with the last CU with great features. You can install it easy as you only need to follow instructions and wait few minutes for deploying. You can use Connect icon to make connection with new Azure VM. When you are signed on VM, you have all necessary links and you can run new NAV. You can run Windows, Web and Tablet clients or Development Environment. You also can run Administration and Development Shells. But I am little disappointed, because again as for NAV2013R2, we have configured Windows credential type, not NavUserPassword. With Windows credential type, you can use this NAV only on this VM. You cannot have really Azure experience. You also have only two endpoints, but you can add additional. blog-2 To make Azure experience with logging from your computer, you have to change credential type with new tools (I will post about it). But regardless of it, it image has excellent tools. You can find all important location for NAV on VM easy and you can add your language, as well and do other great things. Some of features are not installed by default, but you can easy find installation DVD (using link on home page) and finish it if you need. You also can find a lot of cool demos. In any case, thanks to Microsoft for this image. I will have a lot of information for few days, after I make a few demos.


CU3 for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015

Cumulative Update 3 for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015, known as Build 39368 is published in January 21. You can find CU3 on this link, but if you try to find it on the list of all cumulative updates, you cannot find it. I don’t know why, but it still missing here. On this list, you can find only CU1 and CU2. But, if you use my first link, you can find CU3 easy.

As we used to, this cumulative update includes all hotfixes and regulatory features that have been released for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015, including hotfixes and regulatory features that were released in previous cumulative updates.

We can find here a lot of platform hotfixes, but you can also find Microsoft Social Listening integration (I already wrote about it) on this list. You can also find a really lot of application hotfixes in following functional areas:

  • Cash Management
  • Finance
  • Fixed Assets
  • Inventory
  • Job
  • Manufacturing
  • Purchase
  • Sales
  • Service
  • VAT/Sales Tax/Intrastat
  • Warehouse

You can also find local application hotfixes for AU, DE, ES, FI, FR, IT, NA, NL, NO, RU and SE, as well as regulatory features for NA, NL, DACH and ES.

I expect, Microsoft will publish this formally on their blog.
