Truncate AxDB Transaction Log file

When you use the FnO for a while, you see how the transaction log file is growing. And you need to reduce it. Well, if you see how it is growing, then you probably need to configure Transaction Log backup. And you are lucky.

When you do not see how it grows and you are not lucky, you just see a red on the free disk space. And you understand that it’s your SQL AxDB Log file, that has 150 GB. And you have to truncate it somehow.

Dynamics 365 for Operation and Chrome error

I have downloaded new Dynamics 365 for Operations Platform Update 5 AKA AX7. Unpack and install it. Everything is fine, except one thing.

I can log in through IE, but Chrome gives me error ERR_SPDY_INADEQUATE_TRANSPORT_SECURITY.

After searching this error on the Internet I have found the solution. Just download IISCrypto from https://www.nartac.com/Products/IISCrypto/Download. Run it and select the best practices template. Then reboot your server.

ERR_SPDY_INADEQUATE_TRANSPORT_SECURITY

That’s it.
