QB Issue Resolution:
You can only change many of the preferences in single user mode. The way to do it is to run QuickBooks Mac client on the same machine as you have the server. Quit the server. Then launch QuickBooks mac and connect directly to the file. Then you can change any preference you want.
Once you are done, quit QuickBooks Mac and relaunch the server. All the preference changes will be propagated to other clients as they connect.
