Running the NAV2015 service tier console mode

Normally you will always run the Dynamics NAV Service Tier as a service. But some crazy people might want to run it directly from a console, or just from a shortcut.

That can be done, just use the following parameters:

Folder: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\80\Service
Executable: Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Server.exe

Parameter 1: $<name of service>
Parameter 2: console
Parameter 3: config
Parameter 4: <fullpath of config file> Example: “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\80\Service\Instances\NAV80\NAV80.config”

NAV will accept the parametes prefixed with – or / or without prefix (as shown above)

Thats it, putting that together runs the server from a shortcut or from a console.

  1. When you have many customers on different versions/builds this option is very useful.

    However it isn’t possible to invoke the service tier with PowerShell when it’s started in console mode:(
