Best Practices Analyzer for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013

The Best Practices Analyzer for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 is a tool for identifying issues that can prevent you from successfully deploying a three-tier environment of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013. A three-tier deployment is one where the client, Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, and SQL Server are installed on separate computers. These deployments can be challenging because they often require additional domain administration tasks. The tool is relevant whether the client is a RoleTailored client or a Web services client.
The Best Practices Analyzer for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 performs the following verifications:
  • Verifies that an appropriate version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server is installed. Only Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 is supported.
  • Verifies Microsoft Dynamics NAV connection strings.
  • Verifies that the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server service, the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web services service, and the SQL Server service, which are required for Microsoft Dynamics NAV, are running.
  • Checks database permissions to make sure that the required resources can connect to the database.
  • Verifies that the necessary service principal names (SPN) have been created and correctly configured on the account that is running the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server service.
You can find more information about the tool and download it from CustomerSource here or from PartnerSource here.

How to Kill Session in NAV2013

I tried to delete/kill session from Session List page which is under
CRONUS India Ltd./Departments/Administration/IT Administration/General
as before in Classic Client but it didn't work.

There are many ways to kill a session in NAV and these samples just should show you how you can handle this directly in the session page in the windows client.

Var 1:
  1. Open the Dev. Environment and navigate to page 9506
  2. Create a new action (configure your own custom "look and feel" settings)
  3. Go to the C/AL Code Editor and enter the code in the "OnAction" trigger

        IF CONFIRM ('Kill session?') THEN STOPSESSION("Session ID");

   4. Save, compile and run the page. Finished.


Another way would be to change the property "DeleteAllowed" in this page to Yes and type in the "OnDeletePage" trigger
