Scenario: If you have Docker Container of Microsoft Dynamics Business Central (BC) and developing an App or PTE integrating with external sources (external APIs endpoints) – And facing error ‘The remote name could not be resolved’. Understanding: This would happen when Docker Images is not allowed to connect with external network or DNS address.
As mentioned in this blog post, the Invoke-ScriptInBcContainer has undergone some serious changes in BcContainerHelper 3.0.9, which just shipped.
This blog post will describe some details about how this function works.
The function takes a containerName, a scriptblock and an argument list as parameters and will execute this scriptblock inside the container.
Lately we have been seeing an increasing number of people having difficulties creating Docker containers on multiple host OS’. Since Thursday, I have been diving into error reports on GitHub, looking in Telemetry and had some partners helping out trying various tests to see what the result of various changes would be.
Note: This work is based on the “Official Microsoft repository for SQL Server in Docker resources” found here: https://github.com/microsoft/mssql-docker/tree/master/windows/mssql-server-windows-developer
Unfortunately this has not been updated to run Windows ServerCore 1890 and Microsoft SQL Server 2019 – so this is what this blog post is about…
It’s been a while since I last blogged about the ARM templates. Mostly because they just live a life of their own and just works. An average of 20 times a day, some partner somewhere in the work is using https://aka.ms/getbc to create an Azure VM with Business Central running in a container (or one of the other ARM templates) directly from a browser. On top of this are all the partners who are automating the process of creating Azure VMs with a PowerShell script. A few things are changing, but functionality stays the same.
Over the last few months, there has been quite a few blog posts and discussions on social media based on blogs posts from Docker, Microsoft and Mirantis indicating new pricing structure. In this blog post I will try to make the options for running Business Central on Docker clear.
