I want to deploy a NAV 2013 database on Azure, with near real time capabilities (if the data is refreshed once a day, that is good).
I am using this guide to connect to a test sql server from an Azure VM, and will export data tier application (bacpac) file from NAV and import into Azure SQL.
According to the guide, I have to delete all users who use windows authentication. Moreover, I am getting errors while trying to export the bacpac, such as:
NAV 2013 is out of support since ages and we declared support for Azure SQL since its R2 version (that is out of support too).
All thechnologies that lies beneath might be super old compared to the evolution of the SaaS platform.
If you would like to use Azure platform technologies you should first upgrade this environment to a cloud ready version. The best suggestion is to get in touch with your Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) or Reseller in order to orchestrate an upgrade to the latest version as soon as possibile.
Currently the latest version delivered with NAV brand was NAV 2018 (version 11.x) hence it is super strongly suggested to upgrade to the latest version of its successor (Dynamics 365 Business Central) that currently dispatch version 18.x (2021 Wave 1).
Could I ask you something about the guide?
With exporting bacpac from NAV server and importing into Azure SQL, we will create a copy of database. Does this also mean Azure SQL gets updated when NAV gets updated?
No. Azure SQL will be constantly updated under the hood.
That is why I am telling you that NAV 2013 - a static out of support version - might not cope with the SaaS evolution and could not work or be broken any time by Azure SQL updates.
When you move your technology stack in the cloud, they have to follow cloud rules.
Sorry, I meant if NAV data is updated after the bacpac export, this new data will not reflect in Azure on its own right?
