Recently, I was refactoring my Azure DevOps CI/CD scripts that setup and deploy Sitecore 10.1 on a newly created AKS. Deployment went smooth, until I tried to browse to the deployed environments. Nginx, configured with sitecore-ingress provided by Sitecore, returned a 404 Not Found. What gives?
Yesterday I picked up on container development after some inactivity. Before I could start, quite some updates were pushed (in case you missed it: in a recent change, only paid plans are allowed to skip updates). Eventually everything worked as expected
Today, after a reboot, I faced following error:
Resetting to factory defaults did not help (it did help clean out my hard drive since resetting deletes all your downloaded images).
Reinstalling did help a bit: docker succeeded to start up in Linux mode. However, switching to Windows mode threw the same exception.
Since the exception is not very detailed, I had to dig a little deeper: good old Event Viewer to the rescue. Turns out something is wrong with the panic log (love the name).
After inspecting the file it turns out it’s marked as readonly:
Unchecking the checkbox and restarting docker solves the issue.
As you might have heard, Sitecore acquired four51.io, a company know for it’s product called OrderCloud, a next-generation, B2B-focused commerce platform based on MACH architecture. Sitecore rebranded this into Sitecore OrderCloud.
Since it’s a SaaS tool, you can setup a free account within minutes: simply register on https://ordercloud.io to get your sandbox environment (no credit card needed :)). The getting started guide gives you a good understanding of the basic concepts.
Here are my first impressions on it after browsing through the playground environment and the API reference.
