Get Errors from a Docker Container Event Log

It could be that the license has expired, maybe there is something wrong with the tenant, the service tier hasn’t been able to start, who knows? You should probably start by looking for errors in the event log of the container.

Removing all specific NAV and Business Central Docker Images
