Refresh Server Instance table

I am using NAV2018. But I have seen this issue in NAV2017 too.
I often back and restore databases to make copies of them to run on the same Server Box, but on different NAV server instance (running on different port nos).

But often I face a problem where the copy of the database refers to the old NAV server instance, and I cannot refresh this. I tried restarting the service and restarting the whole server box. I even checked the event logs, and it says that the service is started successfully.

    Hi jordi79,
    You can clear the Server Instance table by emptying the table in SQL like described here:

    Have a look at "Task 7: Clear Dynamics NAV Server instance and debugger breakpoint records from old database", in particular this TSQL command:
    "DELETE FROM [<My NAV Database Name>].[dbo].[Server Instance]"

    Best regards,
    Gert Lynge
