Business Notification in Nav2009

navuser1navuser1 Member Posts: 1,329
Hi All,

Going on in the installation following the manual, when I launch setup.exe of Business Notification Server, I have this error message "MS SQL Notification Services" is not installed on your local machine, Please install it before continuing this installation.
Where can I find this for SQL 2008 ? When there is no Notification Service available in MS SQL Server 2008 ? :cry:

Kindly reply.
Now or Never

    SQL Server Notification Services (NS) component is not a part of SQL Server 2008, and since Business Notification (BN) is deeply dependent on NS this is of course an issue.
    But there should be a work around to get BN and NS to work on a SQL Server 2008. Unfortunately this workaround was released by the SQL team just when we(the Dynamics NAV team) released NAV 2009 RTM, so we did not manage to verify that this workaround actually works with the combination: NAV 2009 RTM, BN and SQL Server 2008, but we plan to verify this for SP1 for NAV 2009.

    If you need to upgrade to SQL Server 2008 on the box where BN is installed I would try the following. Please bear in mind that we have not yet tested this, and cannot claim support for SQL Server 2008 together with BN before this test have been completed.

    1. Upgrade the SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008. Upgrading to SQL Server 2008 should leave NS on the box since this is not part SQL Server 2008
    2. After upgrading I would then try to install the SQL Server 2005 SP3
    3. After this I would this I would verify that BN works as it did on the SQL Server 2005.

    See more options for getting SN to work on SQL Server 2008 here:http://download.microsoft.com/download/f/4/e/f4e80c76-3b69-4a42-a90b-79aeaca1177d/ReadmeSQL2005SP3NotificationServices.htm

    I hope this solves your issue. Let me know if it doesn't work.
