Multi-user is setup up and working. Server 2016 with QB Premier 2017 R5. The QBDB Manager is on the domain controller and the service is running as a local system. Everything works fine, but now I have the users getting forced into single use mode each morning. I resolve it by hitting scan folders in the QBDB Manager. It seems to restart the QBCFMonitorService.
Why is the service crashing?

I found another article that says to set the QBCFMonitorService to restart automatically - - I just did that now. Still, isn't it bad for a service to be crashing like this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
We have found that increasing the QB cache size at least reduces the frequency of the services crashing if not eliminating it completely. Have a look at this link https://www.wizxpert.com/cache-amount-for-quickbooks-enterprise/
QuickBooks NEEDS to FIX THIS ISSUE once and for all.
This has been an ongoing problem for many of us. And I don't care how many times they point out the same articles touting the solution(s) - nothing works.
We even went as far a purchasing an actual "server" to host the company files, thinking that may be the solution - still hasn't fixed the issue. At minimum 2x a week I have to run the Database Server to fix the shared files so we can work.
Not a happy camper.

Slightly different problem.
Have been successfully hosting the QB file on a stand alone server with 2 workstations accessing.
Laurie has a desktop working perfectly. Tony purchased a new laptop and has this issue.
If Laurie logs in first, Tony gains access in multi user mode. No issues.
If Tony logs in first, he is logged in as Single user and can't switch to multi user
Laurie receives the message to run File Doctor
If he then logs out and allows Laurie to login, Tony can once again gain access in multi user mode.
I'm guessing a setting on Tony's new laptop?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
I'm glad to see you reaching out to the Community. Let me help you figure out why you're getting this result in multi-user mode.
First, you'll need to make sure only one computer is hosting the company file, which is the standalone server. Please double-check and make sure to turn off hosting on the laptop.
Here are the steps:
Please note that if you see anything other than Stop hosting multi-user access, it means hosting is currently turned off on that computer.
Once done, the next thing you need to do is make sure the set up is correct, and you follow the QuickBooks hosting modes. For more insights and detailed steps, please refer the support link below:

QB, Can you explain why the end of Step 3 says to go to Step 4 if the problem isn't resolved yet Steps 4-7 won't open? The service for DB27 starts and stops. I've done all the steps in 1-3
