Connectng to NAV 5.0 sp1 through NAV


Does anyone know a reason why I can’t connect to NAV 5.0 sp1 through NAV All SQL settings are correct but a ‘can’t find the server’ error message appears when trying to connect.



Hi John,

It doesn’t look like a version issue as you normally get a message saying the database has been converted to a newer version. Can you check a few things:

  1. You can PING the server from the machine

  2. Use the IP address instead of the name

  3. Check the Net Type in the advanced tab
