Re: Troubleshoot Qliksense installation

Thanks Alex, but the solution doesn't work, also tried with 4.5.1 ita and 4.5.2 eng... same problem. As Micael says i'll try to post the qlik support.

What does it means 'Microsoft Active Directory' required? Is possible have Microsoft Active Directory without a Domain? The machine is a virtual server on a 'Workgroup'. As i saw in video tutorial is not neccessary have a Domain.

Anyway as the win event shows the problem is always the same:

System.ArgumentException: Hostname cannot be null or empty...

Re: Troubleshoot Qliksense installation

Yes you can install Server on machine  is not part of the domain. Create user with admin right for Sense  services and go.

microsoft active directory presence is not required. in this case it will be used Microsoft Windows Integrated Authentication.
