Newly Added multiple Sandbox select feature

Introduction:

In October 2019, Microsoft release a feature of Multiple Production Environments refer my previous Blog https://www.olisterr.tech/2019/10/what-happens-when-you-have-multiple.html.
Well, I'm glad to announce that this feature is also available to Sandbox  Environment.


Pre-requisite:

Access to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business CentralAccess to Business Central Admin Center
Procedure:
Today, as I was logged into my client's tenant in https://home.dynamics.com everything was normal until I clicked on Sandbox

Immediately noticing the pop for environment selection, although it says that you have multiple Production Environments select either of this.


I was curious as to When the hell did this happen? and that too with Sandbox Names on Production??
Did I make any mistake in configurations??
I checked the in the Admin Center to confirm and found out that these were Sandbox Environments and not Production.

 Phew!!! Well, this confims that the Text Captions were wrong but certa…

How to Upgrade your Business Central Environment

Introduction: In this blog, I will be showing how to schedule updates for Business Central Online(NAVISION ERP)
Pre-requisites:Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Active SubscriptionAccess to Business Central Admin CenterDemonstration:1. Check if you have an update:
After you have logged into Business Central Admin Center, you will see if for your Sandbox or Production has an update available.


2. Schedule an update:

After your update has been scheduled, your tenant will automatically upgrade itself and you will be getting an email for the same.


Conclusion: As compared to schedule update for Business Central through Admin Center which wouldn't be much reliable and would give you the time frame instead of a date and later updating through Microsoft Support if the process failed.
Well, I hope this blog shows how to upgrade your Business Central Environment without much intervention and you can schedule for further reference. Also, Microsoft notifies if new updates will be available.

Resolving The tenant 'default' is not accessible error or Regenerating new symbols for Business Central On-Premise for customised Database

Problem Statement:Disclaimer:  This blog is only applicable for Business Central On-Premise Version. If you are stuck in the same issue, try this at your own risk. 
I had installed Business Central v14 (Spring 2019) On-Premise with LS Retail. In this, Business Central comes with a ready made setup to connect with VS Code. As I restored the DB given by LS Retail, I could no longer connect to VS Code. This could be a potential case of Running C/SIDE and AL Side-by-side or customising on top of LS Retail.

Despite all the configurations being correct in project's app.json and launch.json, I could no longer connect to Business Central, I couldn't download any Symbols and I couldn't publish any Extension to Business Central.

I checked all BC Administration setup for Development and it seemed to be perfectly fine. I had Enabled Development Endpoint,  Development Endpoint Port was 7049Target was set to Internal, Enable Debugging was Enabled.
I checked my Permissions were set to SU…
