Qlikview Server help

Hi Team,

  we have 2 machines

(1)db1 machine is having sql server and ssis (Sql server 2008 r2,MS visual studio 2008) 16 GB RAM

(2)qv1 machine is having Qlikview (licensed QV server 11,but no license for QV publisher) 32 GB RAM

my requirement is remove one machine(qv1) and push both the things(database part and qv Reports) into one machine db1.

How can i do this? and what type of precautions i need to take before doing it?

Note:- these are Production servers

if any one is having documents or screen shots please share i will keep it hidden

or else my number is 8376964364 give me a missed call i will call to you

if any other details you want for more clarification i will elaborate 

in advance appreciated  your help

Re: Qlikview Server help

Do you REALLY need to have QlikView and Database on one server?

Just to remind you, it's not recommended to install anything else one the QlikView server that QlikView itself, especially no database.

Disregarding the recommendation I'd suggest to:

  • claim a test license for your environment,
  • set up the QlikView server on your db1 machine with this test license
  • configure this server like your first server
  • test everything
  • shut down your old server
  • switch your license to the original license.

To be on the safe side, you should also backup the following folder containing all your logs and settings (assuming the default path is still in use):
C:\Program Data\QlikTech

Hope this helps,

Patrick

Re: Qlikview Server help

I'm afraid I have no screenshots, sorry.

But after setting up your new QlikView Server, you should be fine comparing and copying your setup from the old server.

One other important fact:
Don't forget to set up your odbc connection on the new server, similar to the old server.
You'll need them to contact the db.
