Hello Team,

We have successfully upgraded our system from NAV 2013 to NAV 2013 R2 and able to use all new enhanced feature but in order to use backup and restore feature from RTC for complete data(.fbk) , it seems we need to apply cummalative update 8...but I am not sure as how to apply, when I downloaded it shows the complete setup files...so was little confused as do I need to install again or it can be done by replacing few directories within current installed NAV 2013 R2.

Can anyone please suggest the best way to get CU8 implemented and some steps will be of great help.

Thanks in advance

Rishi

You can simply replace those Platform fixes in server and all user machines.

Oh, excuse the formatting. That's not how it looked on the preview :-( You can still see it well if you copy-paste it to an excel doc for example :D

but in order to use backup and restore feature from RTC for complete data(.fbk) , it seems we need to apply cummalative update 8...

Please note that CU8 will add the possibility to backup and restore data (e.g. from a single company only), but not fbk-files! Instead, a new file format called navdata is introduced: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/nav/archive/2014/06/20/importing-and-exporting-data-in-microsoft-dynamics-nav-2013-r2-cu-8.aspx

Please also note that CU8 is out-dated. Please use CU9 instead: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/nav/archive/2014/07/07/cumulative-update-9-for-microsoft-dynamics-nav-2013-r2-has-been-released.aspx
