Moving QuickBooks to new server

I am following the steps in this link - https://quickbooks.intuit.com/learn-support/en-us/configure-for-multiple-users/set-up-and-install-a-...

 

In Step 1 it says we can select the option "I will NOT be using QuickBooks Desktop on this computer..."

 

I chose that option since it's on a server, but in Step 7 it says to I need to turn on Multi-user Access from QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Do I need to install QuickBooks desktop?

Hello JoshRountree. Welcome to the Community!! You would need the Desktop product to be installed on the server and then on server step 7 is also done if that makes sense. Any other Q's on this please reply back here.

That's conclusion I came to as well. Those instructions seem misleading, I don't see how installing and choosing "I will NOT be using QuickBooks Desktop on this computer..." would ever be useful if you have to do step 7 on the server.

 

Oh well, I installed the full product, thank you.
