How to Handle number of Users and Allotment of time to a particular user in NAV 2013
I have come across one interesting point for handling no of users and the allotment of time to particular user in NAV 2013. Let us take one scenario where the number of user license in NAV is 30, and actual NAV users in the organization are around 48.
Out of these 48 users are divided into 4 departments (Finance, Sales, Purchase & Warehouse). Out of these users, Finance users are continuously connected to the database. Sales users and Purchase users are generally connected in the afternoon. And the warehouse department is generally connected in the evening.
In this case, we can create multiple NST (Navision Service Tier) Department wise. Each NST is attached to a domain and a Port. In active directory services, the system administrator can allot time slots to open a particular port for a particular time for a particular user.
In Navision there is no facility for controlling the time line of users but we can control it through ADS (Active Directory Services) and Firewall.
If you have create multiple NST, it will be very useful both from a Performance perspective as well as from the point of debugging.
