Update Symbol Reference & Error: Failed to reach status ‘Running’ on this server – Additional information may be in the event log of the server

Some time while working we notice below error; Server Instance fails to start.

One of my reader requested solution from me.

So, to generate error I have intentionally created the error to explain the process.

You should pay attention to the message, as it says Additional information may be in the event log of the server.

All errors represented in Error log, sometimes is too technical and don’t give right clue.

There could be other reason, I am representing one general error.

When this happens, series of error messages are generated. All of them may not be helpful to find exact error.

But if you seriously scan each error, something always you can find which can help you in identifying the error or cause of same.

Just like below message, here we can identify that error is in Page 41, due to which Metadata is not updated correctly, leading to failure to starting the Server Instance.

Once you fix the error, you may get error for another object and similarly you can fix that too.

Alternatively, you can compile all objects and find errors in objects modified by you and get done in one shot.

Once all error is resolved, you will be able to start the Server Instance.

If you don’t get modifications to objects available in your AL you can run below command, make sure you Run as Administrator.

Switch to Installation folder by default: –

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central\140\RoleTailored Client

And execute below command:

Finsql.exec Command=generatesymbolrefrence, Database=<Your BC Database>, ServerName=<Your SQL Server Name>

After this you should be ok to start your Server Instance and see modification in AL Project.

The New Report Scheduling feature for end users running reports in Microsoft Dynamics Navision 2015


The new Report Scheduling feature for end users running reports:

  • End user can schedule reports for later execution.
  • User can get to his next task quicker.
  • User has an inbox part for viewing the scheduled reports.

 A. Setting up the job queue to run a report

My Customer needs to run a number of long running reports and does not want to wait for them to complete.

The scenario is simplified because a typical customer setup would involve setting up a NAS instance to process the reports.

A job queue with no filter runs the reports.

In many customer installations, the reports will be picked up by the DEFAULT job queue

My Customer wants easy access to the reports that he has scheduled, so he adds the Report Inbox part to the Role Center page.
