publishing multiple navision servers in extended AD schema

I have followed directions explicitly to extend my Active Directory schema so that in the [FILE - DATABASE - OPEN] window, I should be able to click the lookup button on the SERVER field and it should find published Navision servers in my network environment. We use one test server to host all of our client's databases and run multiple Navision databases off this server with different port numbers (editing the C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\services file and making a new service in Windows). So for one client I may connect to SERVER1:2500 and another might be SERVER1:2510. When I click the lookup button after setting this up, they are all listed as server: SERVER1. No ports listed, but the service names are correct. I am trying to figure out a way to let me use this feature to include the port as well, so that we can better utilize this lookup feature.

Any advice appreciated.

    from Documentation:
    When you install Navision Database Server, a file called schemaXt.exe is copied into the folder that contains Navision Database Server. Run this file to add a definition of a Navision service connection point to the Active Directory. Starting up a Navision Database Server (running as a service) will publish a service connection point using the definition that has been added to Active Directory.

    Had you run the schemaXt.exe from all directories where you have the server installed? Had you restart the services after that?

    maybe I am offtopic... at our company, we use multiple navision server installations to host our client's databases (one server directory (named for example Navision Server Customer1, Navision server Customer2) per one client's database...)
