Install MS Dynamics NAV Server

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 and Microsoft Dynamics Server should be already installed.

Please, make sure that the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server service is available. This can be checked in the Windows 'Services' console (Start -> Run -> type 'services.msc'):

Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server

If for some reasons Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server are not installed yet, you can read Microsoft installation manual.

After you have install Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, the default configuration is for the service to log on using the NT Authority\Network Service account. If Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server and SQL Server are on different computers, then it is recommend to configure Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server to log on using a dedicated Windows domain user account instead. This account should not be an administrator either in the domain or on any local computer. A dedicated domain user account is considered more secure because no other services and therefore no other users have permissions for this account.
