Migrate your Business Central Server VM on Azure

Introduction: When you setup a Business Central Server on Azure for Development / Non- production activities and do not have Disaster Recovery backup setup, there are chances that your VM might not boot up. Most of the times there are issues with billing, networking or even Windows Update and still can be recovered through Azure Support. However the situation I face was Blue Screen of Death and there was lower chances of booting up. Pre-requisites: Fundamental understanding of Azure Microsoft Azure Subscription  Demonstration: 1. Create Disk Snapshot: Generally installations can be done again. However Databases are something important for you. Hence, you will need to attach your crashed VM Disk Drives as auxiliary Disk Drives to a working VM. For existing Drives, you will need to make a Disk Snapshot from the existing Disk Drive. Go to VM > Disks > Select Disk Drive > Make Snapshot. Disk Drive you would like to backup Create Disk Snapshot Create Disk Snapshot > Provide Disk

Migrate IP Address from one Azure VM to another

Introduction: In the previous blog, we saw that you can migrate Data from crashed VM to a new VM. Generally, if a machine is re-setup, the IP address of the machine changes implying that whichever services consumed the services from the original machine has to be reconfigured. In this blog, we will see how to migrate IP Address (Network Interfaces) from one Azure VM to another Azure VM. Pre- requisites : Understanding of Azure Azure Subscription Demonstration: 1. Disassociate your Network Interface: Disassociating the Network Interface will disable the networking connectivity with a specific IP. Please note that your existing work has to be saved to avoid disturbed Network Connectivity. Disassociating works similarly to physically disconnecting your machine from your gigabit ethernet. Goto VM(to disconnect from) > Public Address > Overview > Hit the Disassociate Button Goto Public Address on Azure VM Network Interface - Overview - Disassociate 2. Associate the Network Interfac
