When you run Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 Setup and install Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, you can provide configuration information that is then used as the configuration for the default Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance.

After you install Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, you can change any of the settings that you provided during Setup, or any of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server settings, using either the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server Administration tool or the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows PowerShell cmdlets for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017.

Note
Each Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance has its own settings.

Configuring Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server in Setup

You can configure the default instance of Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server when running Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 Setup. You must first select Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server as a component to install. To do this, select one of the following Installation Options that includes Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server:

You can also customize your installation and the list of components to install. For more information, see How to: Choose Components to Install.

After you specify an installation option or customize your component list, the Specify parameters pane is displayed in Setup. The list of parameters that you see in the Specify parameters pane depends on which components you have selected for configuration. Setup provides a short description for each parameter. For a description of the most important parameters for Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, see Server Option.

When you have finished entering values, choose the Apply button. This returns you to the Specify parameters page in Setup.

After you finish running Setup, you can modify Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server using any of the methods described in the following section.

Configuring Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server After Installation

After you install Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, you can change any of the settings that you provided during Setup, or any of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server settings, in any of the following ways:

Important
After you modify a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server setting, you must restart the associated Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance before any changes can take effect.

Settings in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Administration Console

In the tables in the following sections, Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server Administration tool setting names are used. Settings names in the CustomSettings.config file are slightly different. Quotation marks are required for all values.

Note
You must choose Edit in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server Administration tool before you can modify any values.

General Tab Settings

The following table describes fields on the General tab in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server Administration tool.

Setting Description

Azure Active Directory App ID URI

Specifies the App ID URI that is registered for Microsoft Dynamics NAV in the Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). You use this setting to configure Microsoft Dynamics NAV web services for OAuth authentication, specifically when the Credential Type setting is AccessControlService.

The App ID URI is a logical identifier and does not have to represent a valid location, although it is common practice to use the physical URL of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV web service.

The App ID URI is typically the same as the value of wtrealm parameter of the ACSUri setting that is included in web.config file for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client and the ClientUserSettings.config file for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client.

An example of an App ID URI is https://localhost:7047/.

For more information about how to use the Azure Active Directory App ID URI with OAuth authentication, see Using OAuth to Authenticate Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Services (Odata and SOAP).

Build Restriction

Specifies what happens when a Microsoft Dynamics NAV client tries to connect to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance when the client is running a different build version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 than the server instance.

Values:

  • AlwaysConnect
    The client connects to the server instance without giving a warning to the user.
  • WarnClient
    Before connecting the client to the server instance, a message appears that informs the user that the build versions for the client and server instance are different. The user can choose to continue or cancel the connection.
  • DoNotAllow
    A message appears that informs the user that the client and server instance build versions are different, and the client does not connect to the server instance.

Default: WarnClient

Note
With the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client, this setting compares the build version of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components on IIS with the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance. It controls the connection between Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components and the server instance.

Certificate Thumbprint

If you use security certificates to protect communications between Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server and client services or web services over an open or wide-area network, you must provide the certificate thumbprint to Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server by updating this setting. For more information, see Walkthrough: Implementing Security Certificates in a Test Environment and How to: Implement Security Certificates in a Production Environment.

Compile and Load Business Application

Specifies whether the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance compiles all the business application assemblies and loads them to cache memory when the server instance is started. The assemblies are then retrieved from memory when requested by a Microsoft Dynamics NAV client.

Enabling this setting will reduce the time it takes for the server instance to load application objects the first time they are requested by a Microsoft Dynamics NAV client after the server instance started. However, it will also slightly increase the memory usage by the server instance.

  • If you enable this setting, when the server instance starts for the first time, the business application assemblies will be compiled and loaded to the cache memory of the computer that is running the server instance. The assemblies, along with metadata such object timestamp information, are also stored to a temporary folder on the computer's file system. Whenever the server instance is restarted, it will compare the assemblies that are stored in memory with corresponding objects in the connected database to determine whether the assemblies in memory can be reused. An assembly will be reused if the following conditions are met:
    1. The connected database is the same as before, based on the databasemagic field in the dbproperty table.
    2. The object time stamp that is recorded on the compiled assembly matches the object timestamp in metadata of the connected database.
    If the conditions are not met for an assembly or an assembly for an object in the database is not found in the memory, then a new assembly is built and stored for reuse to cache memory and the file system of the server instance compute for reuse.
  • If you disable this setting, individual assemblies will be compiled on-demand as application objects are requested by the Microsoft Dynamics NAV client. The compiled assemblies will not be reused on subsequent server instance restarts.
Note
  • This setting does not apply to query objects.
  • Assembly compilation happens asynchronously.
  • On average, all application objects will be loaded within the first few minutes that the server instance operates.

Credential Type

Specifies the authentication mechanism for Microsoft Dynamics NAV users of this Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance.

The options are Windows, Username, NavUserPassword, AccessControlService, and None. For more information, see Users and Credential Types.

If you choose AccessControlService, you must specify a token signing key for use with Azure Access Control service (ACS), or a federation metadata location for use with Azure AD. If you choose NavUserPassword, and you specify a token signing key, you can use both NavUserPassword and AccessControlService for cthis server instance.

Note
None is only for internal use on system sessions and typically should not be used. If you choose None, then the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance cannot start.

  • Application objects are compiled with debug information.
    Default: Not enabled

Enable Event Logging to Windows Application Log

Specifies whether to record admin and operational type events (errors, warnings, and information messages) that occur on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instances in the Windows Application log on the computer that is running Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server.

Because Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance events are always logged to the Application and Services Logs, you can disable logging Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance events in the Windows Application log and not lose any data. For more information, see Monitoring Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server Events in the Windows Event Log and How to: Disable Logging Events to the Windows Application Log.

Important
If you are using System Center Operations Manager to monitor Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instances, do not disable logging to the Windows Application log. If you do, monitoring will not work.

Note
This setting does not apply when a report uses a Word report layout at runtime.

Embedding fonts in a PDF of a report makes sure that the PDF will use the same fonts as the original file, regardless of where the PDF is opened and which fonts are installed on the computer. However, embedding fonts can significantly increase the size of the PDF files. By disabling font embedding, you can decrease the size of the report PDF files.

Note
This is a global setting for font embedding in report PDF files. You can override this setting on a report basis by the specifying the PDFFontEmbedding Property.

Default: Not enabled
