Configuring SQL Server Authentication in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 – Part-2

Recall from my previous post Configuring SQL Server Authentication in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 – Part-1, action is almost similar with few small differences when dealing with Multitenant Deployment.

How to configure a Microsoft Dynamics NAV database to use SQL Server Authentication with a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance.

To configure a SQL Server Authentication on a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance, you set up the server instance with the login credentials (user name and password) for the user accounts for the application and tenant databases in SQL Server.

To configure SQL Authentication on Microsoft NAV Server Instance using Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server Administration tool

  • Open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server Administration tool.
  • In the console tree, which is the left pane, expand the node for the computer that contains the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance, and then select the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance.
  • Configure SQL Server Authentication with the application database as follows:
    • In the Actions pane, choose Database Credentials.
    • On the Database Credentials page, choose the Edit button.
    • Set the Database Authentication Mode to SQL Server Authentication.
    • In the Database User Name field, type the login name for the database user that you want to use to access the Microsoft Dynamics NAV application database in SQL Server.
    • In the Password field, type the login password for the database user that you want to use to access the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database in SQL Server.
    • Choose the Save button, and then on the Enable Encryption on SQL Server Connections dialog box, choose the OK button.

Encryption keys are used to help secure the login credentials over the connection between the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance and the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database in SQL Server.

  • On the Information dialog box about encryption, choose the OK button.

This dialog box is to inform you to enable encryption on SQL Server connections, which is disabled by default.

  • If you want to enable encryption on SQL Server connections, in the Action pane, choose Configuration, and then choose the Edit button. In the Database tab, select Enable Encryption on SQL Connections, choose the Save button, and then the OK button.
  • To configure SQL Server Authentication with the tenant database, mount the tenant to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance and specify the login credentials (user name and password) for the database user that you want to use to access the Microsoft Dynamics NAV tenant database in SQL Server.

If the tenant is already mounted to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance, you must dismount the tenant, and mount it again.

Restart the server instance.
