I am trying to install the data manager for quickbooks 2016 on a network share. Quickbooks says it can be done but is not supported. I am hoping someone can give me some advise on how to move the DM.

The data manager (server manager) goes on a server where it can be properly installed and manage the database on the server. We do this for all of our QuickBooks clients.

If your network share is not a server, then what you are doing will not work. QuickBooks can break its database because it is a highly chatty database.

You might clarify what device your network share is on.

We have QB 2016 working on Windows 7 and 10 workstations with the database on Server 2012 R2.
