Error -6104, -50 on Windows Server 2008 when attempting to host

When attempting to host multi-user access on Windows Server 2008, you get error code -6104, -50.

Why this is happening

The Windows user is logged in as a Read-Only Domain Controller.

How to fix it

 Log in as a domain controller or contact your system administrator.


Additional information

The QuickBooks Database Server Manager will still scan and create the Network Data file (ND), but it will not be configured correctly. The ND file is in the same location as the data file and tells the other computers on the network where the file is located.

To view the ND File:

  1. Right-click on the ND file then click Open.
  2. Click on Choose a program from a list, select Notepad from the list, and click OK.

If the ND is configured correctly it should look like this:

ServerIp=xxx.xx.xx.xxx (Server IP)
ServerPort=101xx (Port number changes depending on version)
FilePath=C:\Users\Public\Documents\Intuit\QuickBooks\Company Files\CompanyName.QBW

If the ND is not configured correctly it should look like this:

FilePath=C:\Users\Public\Documents\Intuit\QuickBooks\Company Files\CompanyName.QBW 

Note: When the ND file is not configured correctly to host, it will show in server mode 2.
