SQL Server 2016 released in June this year with many new and interesting capabilities. For further information, please take a look at the product information at this location: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/cloud-platform/sql-server
Over the last few months, the Dynamics NAV team has been testing compatibility with this new version of SQL Server, and we are now proud to announce that
- Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016,
- Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015,
- Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2, and
- Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013
are compatible with the SQL Server 2016 database engine. This applies to the following editions of SQL Server:
- Express Edition
- Standard Edition
- Enterprise Edition
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 will be compatible with SQL Server 2016 at launch.
Note: For reports, please do not install the SQL Server 2016 SSRS components (Report Builder and Report Viewer) , as these currently will not work with Dynamics NAV RDLC reports. For more information, see the system requirements for reports in Dynamics NAV 2016 (you can navigate to earlier versions from that page).
