I confused with some strange things happens to our NAV installation. I have a Windows Server 2008 SP1, SQL 2005 SP3 and NAV 2009R2(Installing Demo from the setup wizard) installed in the same machine. Locally, the NAV installation works fine. So I started to assign some domain users (including domainname\administrator) as NAV 2009 R2 users in windows login window through classic client with SQL Server.
Right after the user assigned and synchronized, I cannot log in to NAV classic using sql server's sa user as well as to RTC when logged in to windows using user(s) that i did not add in windows login window. it is obvious because I did not add sa to Database Login and the other domain user to windows login.
Then I tried to install RTC client in one of my VPC. it is windows XP professional SP2, and i installed in it NAV 2009 R2. I have joined this computer to the windows server 2008 SP1. then i tried to logged in using to my vpc using domainname\administrator and with no luck, I cannot connect to the NAV Server. I've typed the addres manually "servername:7046/DynamicsNAV" or "serverIPAddress:7046/DynamicsNAV" but RTC always give an error 'a server was not found at "net.[url=tcp://servername:7046/DynamicsNAV/Service]tcp://servername:7046/DynamicsNAV/Service[/url]". Either the URL is incorrect or the server is currently not abaliable.' or 'a server was not found at "net.[url=tcp://serverIPAddress:7046/DynamicsNAV/Service]tcp://serverIPAddress:7046/DynamicsNAV/Service[/url]". Either the URL is incorrect or the server is currently not abaliable.'. THIS IS PROBLEM NO 1. I cannot acces NAV 2009 R2 using RTC from other computer in the same network and domain.
because of curiosity, install the NAV 2009 R2 RTC into my host machine, Windows 7 Entrerprise. i DID NOT join my windows 7 to the domain, and I logged in using a user, completely foreign user to the domain, it is actually my local user in the windows 7. i run the RTC and tried to connect to my nav server in windows sever 2008 SP1. And out of my understanding to RTC security system, the RTC managed to logged in to NAV database using my local user. The select server window show the server address = serverIPaddress:7046/DynamicsNAV, Network = Negotiated Authentication (kerberos or NTLM). THIS IS PROBLEM NO. 2. how can I logged in to NAV using user that not even exist in windows login as it is setup. even user out of the domain.
thanks in advance for any replies regarding problem no 1 and/or problem no 2.
