Hey Antoine,

Yes, Qlik Sense is compatible with Windows Core.

The main consideration for choosing that flavor would be is the admin comfortable with administering the entire system using CLI? e.g. can they install and configure a driver and DSN using command line? Because in 2016 you cannot switch back to GUI: powershell - How do I add the Windows GUI to Windows 2016 Server Core? - Server Fault

Hope that helps.

A short update on this.

You can run QLikSense without issues on Widows Server Core 2019 if you install "Server Core App Compatibility Feature on Demand"

Works great.

Hello Gustav,

 

i can confirm that works great. The command line i used to install it was:

Add-WindowsCapability -Online -Name ServerCore.AppCompatibility~~~~0.0.1.0

as documented here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started-19/install-fod-19

 

best regards

Sebastian

It does not seem to be supported? Or is there anything particular that i need to install to get it running? I can install fine, but the engine wont start (no Logs) on server core. If i reinstall the server win GUI it works fine (samme settings in both cases). Is there anything i need to add to get it running?

I have now confirmed with Qlik Support (who got a response from Qlik RnD). Windows Server Core is NOT supported. The Engine will not run on Windows Server Core.
