Discussion board where members can get started with Qlik Sense.
I learned about this at the conference and decided to give it a try.
I am just trying to do a backup.
This is the bat file I am using:
C:\Users\mritter\Desktop\RSM\RepositorySnapshotManager.exe -backup -path=c:\Users\mritter\Desktop\RSM\Backup
It kicked off and has been sitting on 'Creating login credentials file for database' for over 30 minutes. I don't know if this is normal or not.
This is a new installation with not many users or apps yet. So I would have thought that this would run and finish pretty quickly.
Does anyone know if this is abnormal? Also, will anything bad happen if I kill this job in the middle? How long should I let it run?
I'm facing the same thing during a backup as we speak.
Did you overcome this? If so, how?
You think it's because of the certificate/db passwords?
I'm on Qlik Sense server 2.1.1 - what version are/were you?
I need to post more often, I figured it out using the most current Qlik Sense help documentation (and not the documentation from the version of qlik sense I'm using)
The repository database is password-protected, but the -databasePassword argument was not provided.
Once I put the correct password and reran we were smooth sailing.
I'm able to backup Qlik Sense 2.2.4 with below parameters:
Stop all Qlik Sense services
RepositorySnapshotManager.exe -backup -ver=18.104.22.168 -path=C:\Qlik\backups -supportingContentLocation=C:\Qlik\Additional -databasePassword=PasswordAssignedToTheRepositoryDatabaseDuringTheInstallation -certificatePassword=SetItWhatYouWant
if Qlik Sense services are running by LocalSystem Account, You must use pstools for backup client.pfx certification as described here: Repository Snapshot Error
