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.
When QuickBooks Database Manager 2016 is installed on Windows Server 2012 or 2008 running DNS, the QuickBooksDB26 service will not start.
Don’t install QuickBooks Database Manager 2016 on a Domain Controller or server running DNS.
- Stop DNS Server service.
- Start QuickBooksDB26 service.
- Start DNS Server service.
- Set DNS Server service to delayed startup.
Hope it helps.
