QLIK SENSE INSTALLATION: How to find the "Database host name" after installation on server?

Hi,

Here in Finland we have installed Qlik Sense Enterprise version on a server.

How do we find the "Database host name" entered during the initial installation?

Unfortunately the person who installed it is not present so we are trying to find it.

Typically its the name of the server the central node is located on.

Go to central node,  navigate to C:\Program Files\Qlik\Sense\Repository\Util\QlikSenseUtil, run the QlikSenseUtil.exe, once "QlikSenseUtil.exe" is open select "connection string Editor", select "read", in the connection string look for "host=", here is the Host for the Database that the central repository is connecting to and what was enter during the installation. If it is says "localhost" then when it was installed, it was selected to install the data locally where the central node lives.
