  3. In the value, enter the name of the SQL Server that Microsoft Dynamics GP is installed to.  If it includes an instance name, be sure to include that.  If desired, instead of the name, you can use the IP address, port number.
  4. Find the following line:
    • In the value, if the system database name is not DYNAMICS in the current Microsoft Dynamics GP installation, enter the correct system database name.  If it is DYNAMICS, just leave the value in this line at DYNAMICS.
  5. When completed, the file should look something like the following.
