QuickBooks Enterprise 2016 database manager will not start

Turns out the QuickBooks Enterprise 2016 uses the same port range (55368-55372) for the database manager as Microsoft already uses for DNS. So if the server you’re planning on installing QuickBooks database manager 2016 on is also a DC or running DNS for any other reason, you should reconsider. If you must run your QuickBooks database manager on a server also running DNS, here’s how.

[problem]

When QuickBooks Database Manager 2016 is installed on Windows Server 2012 or 2008 running DNS, the QuickBooksDB26 service will not start.

[solution]

Don’t install QuickBooks Database Manager 2016 on a Domain Controller or server running DNS.

[work-around]

  1. Stop DNS Server service.
  2. Start QuickBooksDB26 service.
  3. Start DNS Server service.
  4. Set DNS Server service to delayed startup.

Hope it helps.
