Run nav-docker on Azure

Running a nav container on azure is really simple.

First we need to open an azure Cloud Shell (I prefered PowerShell).
Now we create a resource group for our containers (Name navgroup, location westeurope).

PS Azure:\> az group create -g navcontainer --location westeurope

And now we can create easily a NAV2018 container (in this sample NAV2018, CU1, DE, blue is the name and green is the location).

PS Azure:\> az container create -g navcontainer -n twity-nav2018cu1de --image microsoft/dynamics-nav:2018-cu1-de --os-type Windows --cpu 2 --memory 4 --ip-address public -e ACCEPT_EULA=Y USESSL=N ClickOnce=Y --dns-name-label twity-nav2018cu1de --ports 80 7046 8080

After 5-15 min the container runs and you can attach to the container an extract the login information:

PS Azure:\> az container attach -g navcontainer -n twity-nav2018cu1de
