ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV / Business Central Developer Digest - vol 249ArcherPoint's Developer Digest Weekly Blog

The NAV community, including the ArcherPoint technical staff, is made up of developers, project managers, and consultants who are constantly communicating, with the common goal of  sharing helpful information with one another to help customers be more successful.

As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them on blogs, forums, social media...so everyone can benefit. We in Marketing watch these interactions and never cease to be amazed by the creativity, dedication, and brainpower we’re so fortunate to have in this community—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share this great information with everyone who might not have the time to check out the multitude of resources out there? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from NAV experts and devotees around the world. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.

Dynamics 365 Business Central On Premises: Which Named Users?

Kyle asks: “In Business Central, is there a way to see which Named Users have been chosen to be allowed by licensing?” 

Tim answers: “Business Central On Prem? No.” 

Joe S adds: “It’s controlled by if the user is enabled or disabled and the type of user it is set to. If I have 20 named full users in my license, I can only have 20 full users enabled in the system. If there are more, I get an error. Is that what you mean?” 

Matt T: “My guess is that it is in the order of the User table—Primary Key is User Security ID, not name or anything like that.” 

Error: Trying to Run a Container More than 90 Days Old

Suresh recently ran into an issue where all his Docker containers showed a status of “unhealthy” and was not able to access SQL server nor Dynamics NAV. Most container services were stopped.

Bill Warnke stated: “I am using Docker engine, so I have restarted that using services and it didn’t throw any error.” He then suggests:

Docker ps -a

Get a list of containers

Containers

Then Docker restart *first couple digits of id*

Then check the logs for that container

Docker log *I'd*

Suresh fixed the error after commenting check in navstart.ps.1. Even though he had created his containers a couple of weeks ago, he was still having the “90 days older” issue. Here’s the article for it (Issue #171): You are trying to run a container which is more than 90 days old.
