During Directions US and Directions EMEA, we had to spin up approx. 2000 Azure VMs for our hands on labs.
All of these machines was deployed individually from PowerShell (multiple simultaneous jobs, but still one job=one VM) running on my Developer Machine in Lyngby. The scripts used to create these VMs has been shared with a number of partners with the same need. Continue reading →
In this blog post I will describe the 10 docker commands I use most frequently and what I use them for. The commands can be executed in a Command Prompt, PowerShell or PowerShell ISE on a machine with Docker installed. In any case, you need to be running as administrator. Continue reading →

A lot of examples (like the prior blog post) will use docker run to start a NAV on Docker container, but there are actually a lot of different ways to start these containers. Some of these methods will run the container locally, some will spin up the container on Azure.
In the end, what you get is NAV running somewhere and you can connect, demo, use and develop using it. Continue reading →
What a cool phone number to have if you are a NAV partner in the US. Inspired by that and modernized it to the cloud world, it would be:
So here you are, probably the easiest way to spin up a NAV on Docker environment on Azure for development and test. The mechanism has been used over the last 2 months or so in the NAV Developer preview and in fact, it is the same set of PowerShell scripts that lies behind. Continue reading →
With the release of iOS 10, Apple have changed the way self-signed certificates works and since self-signed certificates are a vital part of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Demo Environment setup, I thought I would describe how to connect to a Demo Environment, signed by a self-signed certificate from an iPad or an iPhone.

This is not an exhaustive description about SSL certificates.
Instead it is an explanation about why self-signed SSL certificates doesn’t always work for you and a high level description of what you need to do in order to install a trusted SSL certificate on the Azure image. Continue reading →
Over the last weeks I have gotten an increasing number of inquiries around MFA. To be honest, I had never tried to setup MFA before, but that didn’t stop me from answering.
