NAV on Azure SQL on NAVTechDays

Last week we finished one of the best NAV conferences this year. NAV Tech Days this year had about 950 NAV passionate attendees from all around the world. Everything in organization was the amazing; Luc did a great job.

This NAV Tech Days was very special for me, because I was the speaker on this conference for the first time. My topic on NAV Tech Days was “Deploying and Managing Dynamics NAV 2016 with Azure SQL Database”. This is something new in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016. I know, a lot of partners still not use NAV on Azure, but by my opinion this feature can move all of us forward. Azure SQL can save a money and we finally have a good tool for managing our multitenant environment – Management Service Portal.

I gave a word to people on my session that I’ll publish my presentation and PowerShell scripts on my blog. You can find them here:

In few following scripts, I’ll describe all details about using NAV 2016 on Azure SQL Server and give you some answers on additional questions I already got.

Changing Credential Type at NAV2015 Image on Microsoft Azure

Now, I have to continue my previous article about new Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 image in Gallery Image on Microsoft Azure. I said that system is configured with Windows credential type. Now, I want to describe, how you can change it very easy with prepared scripts in DEMO folder.

On ‘Welcome to Microsoft Dynamics NAV on Microsoft Azure’ page, you can find Initialize the Virtual Machine link and with it, you can open DEMO\Initialize folder with PowerShell scripts.

When you open and run install.ps1 script, you will configure Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 with NavUserPassword credential type with all necessary configurations. Script is pretty smart and when you run it, it will ask you all necessary configuration questions:

  • NAV language
  • NAV administrator username
  • NAV administrator password
  • Your Cloud-Service name
  • Certificate Pfx File

System always give you possibility to choose default values or to change with your own. For Certificate Pfx File, system ask you to fill your certificate file or choose self-signed certificate. When script finish all necessary tasks, you will get as result all information (URLs and credentials).

Also, you will get all shortcuts (Windows, Web and Tablet Client, Development Environment, Administration and Development Shells…) on your desktop.

Thanks to Microsoft. I really like this script, because everything is so easy. I will continue with other features on this Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 Gallery Image in few following days.
