thanks for all your help...but maybe I am not communicating this correctly. The database and server manager are installed on a MS Server 2012 R2 machine. This server does not have the QB 2016 client installed. Just the database server & hosted database. I have updated all the desktop client machines to the latest available version of QB Desktop. Now I want to make sure the database server manager software is also up to date. When I attempt to update this software (database server manager) there is no update available (page not found) for my version of QB 2016. All I want to do at this point is to update the server software to the latest version.
Hi Scott D,
You can get the latest updates of your Database Server Manager (DBSM) from the website.
After the download completes, run the patch in your server.
We can go back to your QuickBooks Database Server Manager to verify if you're already running the latest release (R17).
Let me know if you need anything else.
