How to change the SQL Server for SmartView External


SmartView External hold the SQL Server name in the SmartView.exe.config file.  If the SQL Server that Microsoft Dynamics GP resides on is moved, this will need to be changed for SmartView External as well.

To change the SQL Server, follow these steps.

  1. Open the SmartView.exe.config file.  By default it is installed in one of the following locations.
    • 32 bit OS:  C:\Program Files\eOne Integrated Business Solutions\SmartView
    • 64 bit OS:  C:\Program Files (x86)\eOne Integrated Business Solutions\SmartView
  2. Find the following line:  <add key="Server" value="xxxxxxxxx"></add>
  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:  <add key="Database" value="DYNAMICS"></add>
  5. 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.
  6. When completed, the file should look something like the following.
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
    <configuration>
    <appSettings>
    <add key="Server" value="SERVER\SQL2012" />
    <add key="Database" value="DYNAMICS" />
    <add key="User" value="svuser" />
    <add key="PhoneNumberFormat" value="(XXX) XXX-XXXX Ext. XXXX" />
  7. Save the File.

Once you have changed the SQL Server information in the config file, launch SmartView External and verify that it is pointing to the data on the new server.
