Short downtime / new domain

As some of you may have noticed, this blog was not reachable for the last couple of days.

This was caused by some bigger server-problems. ShockingTossing Laptop


I moved the blog now to a more stable server and used this possibility to change the blogs url to http://blog.dfugel.de

The old url is still valid but will be removed in a few months, so please change the URL of your rss-reader.

First of all: Microsoft Dynamics NAV '7' will be called Dynamics NAV 2013.

Secondly: The Beta could be availabale in some weeks.

The quote is taken from Microsoft News Center:

Drive sharing while RDP-jumping

Today I learned something new, which I would like to share with you:

It could happen, that caused by network-structure and security-rules you are forced to remote-connect to a server just to open a remote-connection to another machine from this server.

Or in Short: You sit in front of your PC and remote-connect to Server A. From Server A you open a remote-connection to Server B.

When you share your drives during remote-connection, you local drives (from PC) are available at Server A, and the drives of Server A are available on Server B. But your local drives (from PC) are not available on Server B.

There is some easy way to get direct access to your local drives from Server B. You can map the PC-drives on Server A as network-drives. You only have to use this networkpath (i.e. for drive c):



You have other interessting tricks for RDP-Connections? Just use the comment-function to let us know.

Well Done

Object Change Listener

Since the question just poped up I would like to say something about Object Change Listener.

If you are developing within Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 (SP1 / R2) you have the possibility to use the new RoleTailoredClient (RTC). This RTC does not execute buisines logic anymore. The buisines logic is executet on the ServiceTier, a new service which came with NAV 2009.

When you develop objects within NAV 2009 and want to see them in RTC it can happen that your changes are not available. This is nothing new if you had more then one client developing in yout database before. But with RTC it does not solve the problem to restart your client. This is caused by the new architecture. Since the objects are called from servicetier you have to restart the servicetier instead.

Since in most cases there is only one servicetier for multiple RTClients, you do not want to do this to often.

Of course Microsoft knows about this and provides the object change listener to solve the problem.

The object change listener does no more but to watch the objects within the database and cause the servicetier to fetch the newest version of an object if it was changed.

There is an article available at MSDN how to enable the object change listener.

MSDN-Article: Activate Object Change Listener

If you want to know wether your Object Change Listener is activated for the current database you could have a look at the sys.databases-table. There is a field called is_broker_enabled which tells you the current status.
