  • One possibility would be to move the Server Manager to another system, to see if the problem moves with it, ie do the same systems have connection issues?

    • Time to upgrade.  Why spend hours tinkering with unsupported software instead of upgrading and getting functionality without disruption.  I am sure if you put it from a cost of your time and theirs as opposed to the cost of the upgrade eventually they will see the need to do so.

    • As much as I agree with Michael232048​, I thought I'd comment.
      You state that you have disabled all third-party firewalls but what about the built-in Windows one?
      My usual rule of thumb, when diagnosing problems is to remove any obstacle and prove it works first, then methodically enable/add any roadblocks and see what breaks things.
      The firewall could be a red herring and the problem is resources, the workstation's network card/driver, or a whole host of other causes.
      Does the Windows 10 PC that's running the QB Server Manager also run QB?
      If so, does QB still function on that PC when the other, remote PCs can't connect?

    • Nick Ballard​, No I have not completely disabled the firewall, although I could for testing.  Yes, that workstation does run QB with no problem.  Interestingly on other machine seems to be able to communicate pretty reliably as well, but two others cannot.

    • Nick, I had exactly the same thought.  Staff is locating one now...  :)

    • Nick Ballard​ - Installed the QuickBooks Databases Server Manager on another workstation, moved the data files, mapped the new share to the other workstations and it's been running fine for several days.  Even with our BitDefender installed, still okay.  No idea what the conflict was on the first machine, but this is a good solution for now.
