Detailed Description

Use the New-NAVServerConfiguration cmdlet to create a new configuration with default values, or to replace the existing configuration for a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance.

Use the New-NAVServerConfiguration cmdlet without arguments to create a new configuration with default values. The cmdlet returns an XML document that contains default configuration settings for a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance.

Use New-NAVServerConfiguration with the -ServerInstance and -ServerSettingsDocument parameters to replace the existing configuration for a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance.

Parameters

-ServerInstance<String>

Specifies the name of a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance. The default instance name is DynamicsNAV70. You can specify either the full name of an instance (such as MicrosoftDynamicsNavServer$myinstance) or the short name (such as myinstance).

If you specify a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance, the configuration replaces the current configuration for that instance. A new CustomSettings.config file is created in the service directory for the instance, overwriting any existing CustomSettings.config file.
