Error -6175,0 Quickbooks on Remote Desktop
This error is caused by the QBDBMgrN service not being able to start because the DNS server is using the port. Simple solution is to open an elevated command prompt and run
- Open an elevated Command Prompt (Run as Administrator…)
dnscmd /Config /SocketPoolSize 0
regedit.exeand expand the
- Navigate to
- If not already present, create a new
- Set a decimal value of 0
- Restart the DNS Server service:
net stop dns && net start dns
Be aware that setting the value too low, effectively defeats the purpose of MS08-037
If you’re on Windows Server 2008 R2 and just want to make sure that a number of individual UDP endpoints are not used by DNS, you can also specify a list of port ranges to be excluded from use by DNS:
dnscmd /Config /SocketPoolExcludedPortRanges 55333-55339
- Users get the error Error Code: H202 This company file is on another computer, and QuickBooks needs some help connecting.
- Quickbooks server manager service on the Windows 2012 server is not running.
- When you run the QuickBooks Database Server Manager, and click Start Scan, it scans the folders, then get an error: Quickbooks network diagnostics failed. Resolve errors and retry.
- If you try to start the QuickBooksDB26 system service, it starts and then immediately stops, giving the message, “The QuickBooksDB26 service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs.”
- In the Application log on the server this error appears:”The description for Event ID 1 from source SQLANY 16.0 cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.
In my case, the quickbooks database server, and DNS server are both using port 55333. If DNS is running first, quickbooks doesn’t choose another available port, but rather stops completely.
Stop the DNS Server service, then start the Quickbooks service.
This works, but you will have the same problem after a reboot.
Stop the DNS Server service, and the Quickbooks service.
Reserve the port using netsh from the command prompt
netsh int ipv4 add excludedportrange protocol=udp startport=55368 numberofports=5
then start both services and set the DNS Server service to automatic delayed start. It allows QB DB Server Manager to grab the ports it wants before DNS starts up.
