Root directory path in QMC

Hello team -

Quick question 

Is there any way to point the QMC path when switching form production to DR server. 

The qv is installed in production and DR windows 2016 physical servers.

Currently i need to manually change the UNC path and mounted folders path whenever there is a DC to DR switch. 

Is there any automatic way to handle this. 

For example:

In production my root folder is \\10.0.1.23\projectname\docs

In DR my root folder is \\10.1.1.23\projectname\docs.

Appreciate your quick response. 

Rgds,

Sean.

Hi, there are some options to develop avoiding manually change paths when moving documents, most common are:

- Use relative paths: ..\..\folder

- Use a file with the root path, documents load this file using "include" to load root path, usually in a variable.

- Using QDF https://github.com/QlikDeploymentFramework/Qlik-Deployment-Framework/releases/tag/1.7.4

Sean, the optimal method here would be to control this via DNS I believe, have the network guys create an Alias for you that you or they can change when things switch between environments such that you do not need to do anything at all in that case if they would then be responsible for changing the pointer on the Alias if there is a cutover to the DR environment etc...  Hopefully this makes sense.  So you would use the DNS alias in the UNC path instead of the IP address at that point...
