Hi everyone.

Please advice how I can login into the Navsion Client system.
I have database backuped from NAV 5.0 Sp1 SQL and restored it in Navision Native database. Now I failed to login. I have SQL account and password.

    You can't login with a sql account which is non-existing in the native db.
    If there is no database login, you should be able to login w/o username/pw.
    If there is a db login, use that account.
    If the db login credentials are unknown, then you cannot enter the db at all.

    With V5 there are two sorts of accounts; 'Database logins' and 'Windows Logins'.

    If you're switching from SQL to Native.
    • The Windows logins should work unchanged.
    • The database logins will continue to work but the passwords have been lost; you will have to login using a database user ID and NO PASSWORD.

    If there are users in EITHER list Navision will require you to login.
    There are no public tools to modify a database without logging in to it so if you don't know the authentication you can't get in.

    Thanks for answers
    And what about compression optimization of the database? IF it works, I'll be able to reduce the database size which will improve transaction speed ?

    Using NTFS compression on a native database works in theory. In practice it gave me spurious disk errors occasionally with large databases. -- DONT USE.

    Using NTFS compression on an SQL database is STRONGLY discouraged by Microsoft, at one point it interfered with the proper functioning of transactions; probably still does -- DONT USE.

    SQL2008+ in database compression appears to work well, Rashed and Kriki both have given blog entries.
