Thanks for any assistance with this.
Here is my situation...
  • The server we had hosting the files for GPv4 and GPv7 crashed and we've recreated the file share on a different server.
  • Both versions had their data mapped to the network drive H and we've updated the mapped drive so that the file locations still show up the same at the workstations.
  • Despite this, I'm still getting an error somewhat related to "pathnames" but I don't see how the paths could be wrong.

The specific error thrown by both versions is...

  • An open operation on table 'SY_Pathnames' has caused an unknown error (3014)

So I have two questions if any of you gurus can help with either...

  1. Am I correct in assuming these versions of Great Plains don't have a database backend? I've never seen any connection strings in any settings anywhere.
  2. Is there a chance the abrupt loss of the server left the files in a locked state? If so, any idea how to unlock them?

Once again, thankful for whatever advice you can give.

- Josh
