The QuickBooksDBXX service on Local Computer started and then stopped

The QuickBooks Database Service Just Starts and Then Stops

A typical small business scenario is to run everything from their Windows Domain Controller, using something like Small Business Server, or just using a single DC in a file server and QB server role. Sometimes the QB Database server will fail to start due to the competition for port 53, that it shares with the DNS server.   The fix is to stop the DNS Server service then start up the QB services first, finally start the DNS Server service.  There is some terrible advice on Intuit's own website. It's just plain wrong.  Do not try to reinstall Quickbooks Server.  The solution is to delay the start of DNS services, and to change the service user of the QB servers to QBDataServiceUserXX
