As you probably discovered, the February 2020 security update had a significant impact on NAV/Business Central Docker Containers. Especially if you were running Process isolation. Most visible problem was the fact that you couldn’t launch 32bit executables in containers after applying the security update.

Update: Weekend cleanup is done and the latest daily builds from master (next major) and 15.x (next minor) are updated. I have also updated the number below from 45 days to 7 days as I don’t see any reason to have older insider builds. Let me know if you think differently, thanks.
It is cleanup time. Our insider repository has become very very big and it is time to clean up. The problem however is, that the current insider registry has reached a size, where it is very hard to clean up, so… Continue reading
I have always preached that you shouldn’t try to keep your Docker containers running. Containers should be something, which easily can be dismissed and recreated for any developer. One of the frequent questions is then: But what about my demo/development data? Continue reading
