How to configure Windows Servers and QB Database for QuickBooks Enterprise

QuickBooks is famous for showing various errors during attempts from a workstation to connect to the Server, which stores the company data file. Some of these errors are Error 6001 among others. The first thing that you need to check, is that the QB Database Service itself is running properly on the Server or the hosting workstation. Even though your Server might be configured perfectly, QuickBooks Database Services may shut down unexpectedly and without notifying any users. To navigate to the proper section on the Server, please follow the steps below:


Launch the CONTROL Panel on your Server and select the above highlighted option.


From the Administration Services window, select the SERVICES option.


From all the Services currently running on your Server, select the QuickBooksDB option. The number refers to the Version you are running (In this example, number 27 refers to QuickBooks Version 2017).

Make sure the service is “Running” and set to “Automatic”.

Please also check the following:




Before you restart the Server, you can see if restarting this Service fixes the problem.
