Creating Multiple Local BC Docker Sandboxes

MattHMattH Member Posts: 12

I am trying to understand how to create multiple local BC Sandboxes in Docker for different customers. Each customer has a different codebase, so I believe that Tennating does not apply.

I am using the PowerShell Extension New-NavBCContainer that's within the .ps1 script "CreateBCSandbox" that you can download from the BC Web Client.

I can create the first Sandbox (for Customer "A") without an issue. I can connect to it with VS Code, download symbols and publish to it, etc.

I then created a second sandbox (for Customer "B"), but this broke Customer "A". I could no longer connect to it, until I stopped the other Sandbox, for Customer "B". I was still getting "the default tennant does not exist" errors.

I deleted the Sandbox for Customer "B" (rebooted) and all was good with the Sandbox for Customer "A" again.

Can anyone assist with what I might be doing wrong? I don't know if I am utilising Docker incorrectly, or if I am not specifying the all of the options when creating the Sandbox.

I notice that there's an "Instance" field, that always gets set to 'BC'. I rememeber with previous 3-tier "on-prem" installations, the Instance gave you the speration between customers.

Please can anyone assit me with this. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, specifying isolation 'hyperv' explicitly for every container helped me to resolve this. Please try this out.
