How to Resolve The Sage 50 File System Error 3111
1. Method One: Closing Open Pervasive Sessions
Follow the steps provided below:
- Restart your system and server
- If you’re working with a multi-user version, then ask everyone to logout of any Sage service they are currently using
- Open the PSQL Monitor Utility
- Unlock the open files
- If while opening the PSQL Monitor Utility program you get an error then use system tools to close the application. You’ll require administrative privileges to do so.
If the error does not resolve, then simply ask everyone to restart their server. Also, we recommend that you don’t delete any users when using the PSQL Monitor. If you want to do so, then make sure that everyone is logged out of the system. If someone is logged in and working, then there data might be lost. Further, there can be a damage to the data file on the server.
2. Method Two: Firewall Settings
Windows firewall is infamous for blocking a few safe connections through particular ports. This is done in order to secure the system of the user. The user can configure a particular port and allow network connection through it.
But before doing that, we must ensure that firewall is causing a problem, otherwise all of the effort would go in wane. You should simply disable the firewall to check if it is the root cause of Sage error 3111. If after disabling firewall, you do not get the error, then you should follow the steps provided below:
- Click on start menu
- Type in Advanced Firewall Settings
- From the left panel, click on Inbound rules
- Create a new rule and add the port through which you want to allow the connection
- Repeat the steps for Outbound rules
- Save names for the rules
Now the ports through which Sage 50 is connecting to pervasive won’t be blocked by the Firewall.
