Hi All,

I've been having a complete nightmare trying to resolve certain error message in the event view after configuring and starting the NAS server. Upon starting the service and refreshing the service status changes to STARTED, however in the even view I keep getting the error messages below. Please could someone help me? (thank you).

The NAV database is in SQL and the application appears to be running fine.

 The event is just stating that the
Database Service cannot be published to AD. This does not effect in anyway the
operation of the NAV server service or the NAV client, the service does not need to
be published. You can ignore the message. Just to restate; this is a warning
message only and does not affect the operation of NAV in anyway and can be safely

Just for your information the following is from w1w1ism.pdf, about publishing NAV
server in AD:

"Before you can publish a Navision Database Server in the network, you must add a
definition of a Navision service connection point to the Active Directory. Navision
Database Server uses this service connection point to publish itself in the network
and the clients use this information to locate the server and to find out how to
connect to it. Only servers that have been installed as a service can be published
in the network. To add a definition of a Navision Database Server to the Active
Directory, you must add a Schema Extension to Active Directory. This must only be
done once for each forest of domains and domain trees, regardless of how many
Navision Database Servers are in that forest. When you install Navision Database
Server, a file called schemaXt.exe is copied into the folder that contains Navision
Database Server. Run this file to add a definition of a Navision service connection
point to the Active Directory. Starting up a Navision Database Server (running as a
service) will publish a service connection point using the definition that has been
added to Active Directory."

Hope help
