Application Server is a component of the Classic Architecture in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009.

While you run Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Setup, you can provide configuration information for Application Server.

Configuring Application Server in Setup

You can configure Application Server while running Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Setup. You must first select the Application Server as a component to install. To do this, select the installation option that includes the NAV Server: the Classic Server Components Option. For more information, see Installation Options.

You can also customize your installation and customize the list of components to install. For more information, see How to: Choose Components to Install.

After you choose the Classic Server Components option, or customize your component list to include Application Server, the Specify parameters pane is displayed in Setup. Click Application Server (the underscore indicates that this component is configurable) to open an Installation Parameters pane.


The list of parameters that you see in the Specify parameters pane varies, depending on which components you have selected for configuration. The following parameters pertain to Application Server.

Parameter Description

Service name

Specifies the service name for the Classic Database Server that Application Server connects to.

Service name SQL

Specifies the service name for the SQL Server database server that Application Server connects to.

Click Apply when you have finished entering values to return to the Specify parameters pane in Setup.

Only one of these parameters is meaningful, depending on which type of database server Application Server connects to. Use Application Server Manager (described below) to specify whether Application Server connects to a Classic database server or an SQL Server database server.

Configuring Application Server After Installing

After you install Application Server, use Application Server Manager to modify its properties. With Application Server Manager you can modify the two properties that you configured with Setup, or any additional properties.

Configuration information about Application Server is available in w1w1atas.pdf ("Installation & System Management: Application Server for Microsoft Dynamics NAV"). To obtain this manual, go to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 Developer and Installation Guides page in the Microsoft Download Center and download w1w1atas.pdf.
