  • 1.  Error reinstalling BC on prem

    Posted May 12, 2020 02:22 PM

    I'm not able to reinstall server. Is there a way I can remove BC server from services? BC admin shell is not installing so can't remove instance from there either.

    Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Build 29530
    Error Report
    Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Server Components
    Fatal error during installation.

    The service 'Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Server [BC140]' (MicrosoftDynamicsNavServer$BC140) failed to start. This can be caused by one of several issues. For example, the password for the account that runs the service may be incorrect, or there could be a conflict in port sharing for the port settings for the service, or you have specified that the port for the server should be opened in the Windows firewall even though the Windows firewall is not enabled on the computer. For more information, see the event viewer.

    thank you!!

    Open the BC Adminstration PowerShell window elevated as administrator.

    Use the command Remove-NAVServerInstance. You can get help and documentation for that command using

    Get-Help Remove-NAVServerInstance
