Would you like to...

If you move your database to another server, or inadvertently perform a full install on a workstation, you can use SLDBConf.exe to point the workstation to another location.

For 32-bit machines, use the following path:

  • C:\Program Files\ServiceLedger\ServiceLedger\SLDBCONF.exe

For 64-bit machines, use the following path:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\ServiceLedger\ServiceLedger\SLDBCONF.exe

Important: You may need to run SLDBConf.exe with Administrative privileges (right-click on the file and select "Run as Administrator")

Unless you have a non-default ServiceLedger configuration, you should only need to perform the following two steps:

  1. Enter in Host Name or IP Address of the ServiceLedger Server
  2. Click either OK or Save & Close, depending on your version of ServiceLedger
  3. If you get an error message, such as "Failed to set data for ServiceLedgerSQL", verify that you have run SLDBConf.exe with Administrator privileges

If the program closes without error, you have successfully configured your workstation to point to the ServiceLedger server

For non-default installations:

If you are using a non-default installation, you may need to configure additional parameters. Press <Alt><F8> to enable changes to those fields. Important: You should not make any changes to these fields unless directed to do so by your Network Administrator!

  • Server: This is usually the only field required. Specify the computer / machine / network name, as seen in Control Panel > System of the ServiceLedger server.
  • Instance: You should generally not need to modify this field. The default instance is SERVICELEDGER.
  • DB: You should generally not need to modify this field. The default DB name is ServiceLedger.
  • NT Authentication: You should generally leave this box unchecked unless instructed to do so by your network administrator.
  • User: The default user is sa.
  • Password: The default password is either s1d#m0*1S1Sl or sldemosl.
  • Network Library: You should generally not modify this field unless instructed to do so by your network administrator.
  • Once the settings are correct, press (depending on your version of ServiceLedger) either OK or Save & Close.

    Note: Versions of this file prior to 2009 have a 3 state "NT Authentication" box.  There is checked, unchecked, and gray checked.  A gray check is the same as unchecked, so if you wish to use NT authentication, ensure it is checked and is not gray.
