New Management Admin Cmdlets

New Management Admin Cmdlets

  • Comments 0

Windows PowerShell is becoming ever more used in the professional IT organization, and in Microsoft Dynamics NAV we are continuously extending and improving the set of administration management PowerShell cmdlets.

With hotfix 2791548, we introduce these additions and updates, all fully backward compatible with cmdlets shipped with Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013:

  • New-NAVServerInstance
    • Creates a new Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance - new parameters
  • New-NAVWebServerInstance
    • Creates a new Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server instance and binds this instance to a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance - new
  • New-NAVDatabase
    • Creates a new Microsoft Dynamics NAV database from a backup file - new
  • Rename-NAVCompany
    • Renames a company in a Microsoft Dynamics NAV database - new

Note

To use the new and changed cmdlets, you must obtain the relevant hotfix through your Microsoft Dynamics NAV support contact. For more information, see the KnowledgeBase article for the hotfix (requires access to PartnerSource/CustomerSource).

The rest of this blog post describes the cmdlets at a summary level. The full documentation is available on the MSDN Library. Additional documentation is available at Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows PowerShell Cmdlets.

New-NAVServerInstance

Creates a new Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance.

Syntax

Parameter Set: __AllParameterSets

New-NAVServerInstance [-ServerInstance] <String> -ManagementServicesPort <ServicePort> [-ClientServicesCertificateThumbprint <String> ] [-ClientServicesCredentialType <String> ] [-ClientServicesPort <ServicePort> ] [-DatabaseInstance <String> ] [-DatabaseName <String> ] [-DatabaseServer <String> ] [-ODataServicesPort <ServicePort> ] [-ServiceAccount {<LocalService> | <NetworkService> | <LocalSystem> | <User>} ] [-ServiceAccountCredential <PSCredential> ] [-SOAPServicesPort <ServicePort> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

Use the New-NAVServerInstance cmdlet to create a new Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance. You must specify a name for the instance, in addition to values for the four port parameters. All other configuration values for the new instance are based on default values. Make sure that you verify the DatabaseServer and DatabaseName values after the instance is created, to ensure that the instance can accept client requests.
All permissions that are required for the instance to start are configured automatically.
