Configure the QuickBooks Database Server Manager to a specific IP address

A computer may have multiple NICs (Network Interface Cards) that allows for multiple IP addresses to run though different local area networks. When a new local area connection is enabled QuickBooks Database Server Manager obtains the new incorrect address and users will experience errors when logging into the file across the network.

Detailed instructions
  1. Press Win + R to pull up the Run window.
  2. Enter services.msc and click OK.
  3. Locate QuickBooksDBXX on the Services window. (See table below for service name for your year of QuickBooks)
  4. Right-click the QuickBooksDBXX from step 3 and select Stop.
  5. Right-click the QuickBooksDBXX from step 3 and select Start
  6. Return to QuickBooks and the correct IP address is now assigned.
