Folder Connection through Network in Qlik Sense

Hi,

I have the following issue: i have 2 Qlik Sense servers on different networks and i need Qlik Sense to be able to share their Data Layer between each other.

More Details: i have the following folder:

- A: \\Server1\c\Qlik\DataLayer

- B: \\Server2\c\Qlik\DataLayer

I need Qlik Sense of Server 1 to be able to see B (STORE QVDs in it and Read QVDs from it)

and Qlik Sense of Server 2 to be able to see A (STORE QVDs in it and Read QVDs from it).

The main issue is that there is that the 2 servers are on different networks and there is no shared Active Directories between them to enable Windows Sharing possibilities between them.

What i could do is to open the folder A from Server 2, but it is always asking for credentials.

How can i make this folder connection work in Qlik Sense Apps?

Thank you in advance.

Hi man,

I tried it. I created a mapped drive on windows, and now i can access the other server from this drive in Windows, however Qlik Sense did not recognize this drive. Is there any configuration to be done inside it?

The mapped drives are user specific, so the mapped drives created by you will not be understood by the QS service account. You will need to be create the mappings in the windows login script for the service accounts if you want to use mapped drives to solve the problem.

Hi Jonathan,

Can you explain what do you mean by windows login script.

Can you give us the procedure to do the suggested way?

And do you have any better way than the mapped folder?
