I have the following problem, out of the blue without any pre-notification, most of the users in our implemenation are unable to login using windows login authentication to Microsoft Dynamics Nav 5.000. Our implemnation brief is (CSide database, 40+ users, DB Server is 2008 SP1).
the shot shows the Sessions status windows.
Also I can find the below error in the event viewer of the DB server
The description for Event ID 20010 from source <SERVERNAME> cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.
If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.
The following information was included with the event:
The program failed to publish Microsoft Dynamics NAV Database Server Service Connection Point in Active Directory.
In order for Microsoft Dynamics NAV Database Server to publish a Service Connection Point, the Active Directory Schema on the network domain
The first problem is common - these sessions are sessions before the user logged in, e.g. when the login dialog is displayed. There is already connection, but the user is unknown.
The second one you can only ignore. It is standard too.
Thank you for the response, my problem here is when the sessions are in that position, the users are unable to reach Navision. the error is.The Network path cannot be found This message refers to the file . " There is a dot here". The network server may be down, or the path may be invalid.
While users are still able to reach the server, the only solution in that case is to restart the server !
Appreciate your further help.
I am afraid that this is not connected to this problem. What are the users entering into the connection dialog? Only Server Name? Or they are trying to enter the database file too? I recommend to connect your partner about this, it looks like some small issue leading to "big" problems which could be solved just by checking the user behavior.
Users including me, are entering the server IP address only and selecting the authentication as windows authentication. and as you said users are already connected to the database as the session is showing on the database but it is not authenicated
Are you using some remote connections (RDP, Citrix)?
Our Environment is mixed (Citrix + Direct connections) , the problem appears on both scenarios
