The QuickBooks error H202 is one of the H series errors that usually occur when switching to multi-user mode. This error prevents you from establishing a multi-user connection to the server. There are several reasons that may lead to the error H202 in QuickBooks. Through this article, you will learn the causes behind the error and the solutions to fix it.

QuickBooks Error H202

Why Does QuickBooks Throw Error H202?

Here are some possible reasons that could cause the error H202 in QuickBooks:

• Corrupt company file

• Outdated QuickBooks version

• Firewall settings interrupt or block the communication

• Incorrect hosting configuration settings

• Network data (.ND) file is corrupted

• QuickBooks services (QuickBooksDBXX, QBCFMonitor, etc) are not working.

Top 6 Methods to Fix QuickBooks Error H202

Following are some effective methods to resolve the QuickBooks error H202.

Method 1: Check the Services on the Server

The error H202 can occur if the QuickBooks services (QuickBooksDBXX and QBCFMonitor) are not running on the server. You can check the services on the server using the below steps:

• Go to the Windows Start button on your server system.

• Type Run in the search field and then open the Run window.

• In the Run window, write “services.msc” and then press Enter.

• Search for QuickBooksDBXX in the list and then double-click on it.

• Choose the Automatic option for the Startup type.

• Check the service status. It should be either Running or Started. If it’s neither, then click on Start.

• Click the Recovery option. 

• Choose to restart the service from each of the dropdown menus: First failure, Second failure, and Subsequent failure.

• Click Apply and then OK to save the changes.

You can repeat the above save steps for QBCFMonitor Service. After that, open your QuickBooks and check if the issue is fixed.

Method 2: Add the QuickBooks Services to the Admin Group

Sometimes, the QuickBooks error H202 can occur if QuickBooks services, such as QuickBooksDBXX and QBCFMonitor are not assigned with admin permissions. You can verify and assign the right permissions using the below steps:

• Open File Explorer.

• Look into the folder (which contained the company file). Give right-click on it and then click Properties.

• Click on the Security button and then click on Advanced.

• Click QBDataServiceUserXX and then click Edit.

• Now check and set the below settings to Allowed:

o List Folder/Read Data 

o Traverse Folder/Execute File

o Read Attributes

o Read Extended Attributes

o Write Attributes

o Read Permissions

o Create Folders/Append Data

o Create Files/Write Data

• Make sure all the permissions are set correctly. If not, then right-click on the folder and then click Properties.

• Click Security > Edit.

• Choose the desired QuickBooks service and then click Full Control.

• Click Allow.

• Choose to Apply and then click OK.

Method 3: Check the Internet Connectivity

QuickBooks may throw the error H202 if there is an issue with the network connection. To check the connection, follow the below steps:

• First, ensure that Network Discovery is enabled on your server and system (in which you are getting the error).

• Go to the Windows Start button on your server and workstations.

• Type Network in the search field and then open Network and Sharing Center.

• Click on Change advanced sharing settings.

• Check if you have selected “Turn on network discovery” in the Network Discovery section. 

• Now, open the Command Prompt window, enter “ipconfig/all”, and then press Enter.

• In the Windows IP Configuration section, search for the Host Name. Your server name will be on the right side.

Windows Hostname

• Note down your hostname and check the server and workstation connection. Here are the steps:

o Open Command Prompt.

o Type ping “your server name” and then press Enter.

If you get a reply, it means your server is working fine. If you don’t get any response, then contact your IT team for further help.

Method 4: Add Your Server to Windows Host File

In a multi-user process, your server system hosts your company file and other workstations access it. Sometimes editing the Windows host file can fix the issue. To check and edit this file follow the below-given steps:

• On the server computer, open the Command Prompt window.

• Enter ipconfig/all and then press Enter.

• Note down the hostname and IP address.

Now, perform the below steps on both the server and the workstations:

o Close your QuickBooks.

o Open the Start option on the server computer.

o Choose a Computer. 

o Follow the path C:\Windows\Syswow64\Drivers\Etc.

o Find the host file and double-click on it. 

o Choose Notepad.

o Enter the IP address, followed by the system name. 

o Now, save the file by clicking on the Save button in the File menu.

o Add the file name as “hosts”, select Desktop, and then select Save.

o Search the file you just saved and then right-click on it.

o Choose Copy.

o Browse to the file path you used earlier.

o Search the ‘hosts’ file, right-click on it, and then click Rename.

o Rename the host's file and then choose Continue.

o Press Ctrl+V to paste the copied file and then choose Continue.

Method 5: Check the Firewall Settings

Many users have confirmed that they’re able to fix the QuickBooks error H202 by reconfiguring the Firewall settings on the server. You can check and set up the Firewall settings to fix the error.

Method 6: Run QuickBooks Tool Hub

The QuickBooks error H202 can occur if the company file is corrupted or there are network issues. In such a case, you can run the QuickBooks Database Server Manager using the QuickBooks Tool Hub. Here are the steps:

• First, close your QuickBooks. 

• Download and install QuickBooks Tool hub.

• From the Tool Hub, select Company Files issues. 

• Run QuickBooks File Doctor. 

• In the QuickBooks File Doctor wizard, choose your company file from the dropdown.

• Click Check your file and then click Continue.

• Fill in your QuickBooks admin password and then click on Next.
