In Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, to connect to more than one database from the same computer running Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, you must create two distinct instances of Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server. You cannot create the second instance using Microsoft Dynamics NAV Setup.

The computer running Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server is the middle tier between the client and the database and runs as a service within the Windows Communication Framework. Before you can connect the RoleTailored client to a second database through a single Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server computer, you must create a second Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server service on that server computer.
