Help with Qlik Sense multi-node installation

Hi guys,

I need some help with a multi-node installation on Sense. I would apreciate if someone can guide me to do this.

My client needs 3 environments:

1. Production site for published apps only for internal purpose.

2. Development site for unpublished apps.

3. Another production site only for specified published apps, not all. Only for some users. These users don't have permission to access to production site One.

Another requirement is load balance between two production sites and failover control on central node.

I have a doubt too. It's possible have different urls on every site?

If i have an app which stores qvds files. What happen if i reload this app on development site or on production site? I want my qvd files on production dont change meanwhile i am changing an app and testing It.

Many thanks!!

I did 3 independent installations :

  • Dev     Single node
  • Test     Single node
  • Prod    Dual node


  • Dev, Test & Prod completely independent
  • A new Qlik Version can be tried first on Dev and tested on Test before installing on Prod
  • 3 independent file systems so each has its own independent QVD's
  • 3 independent url's


  • 3 Independent licence LEF's needed so more money
  • Dev > Test > Prod promotion done qvf import / export

Summary:  It is robust and reliable and de-risks Qlik version upgrades

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately we can't do this configuration because my client only have one license site and they don't want to buy more.

Has someone did this type of installation or similar with multinode? I read something about control it with sync rules but I have not found much documentation about it.
