Named Pipes

Epicor is helping me work on speeding up my Epicor a bit and they want me to either force TCP/IP or Shared with SQL Server. However, based on what I am reading, they want me to get rid of Named Pipes. If my memory serves me correctly, aren’t named pipes required for certain parts of Epicor run? Or am I missing something?

I thought names pipes were required for Windows Auth in SQL server. I could be wrong about that part. Named pipes do add additional overhead. As SQL has to run the names pipes service. I can’t believe disabling that would increase performance noticeably though.

I left them on and turned the shared off. We will see how that does.
