I've installed QS Server and all services run fine.
Then i stopped the services and now I am trying to restart the QlikView Sense Repository service but Iam getting the following error message
in the windows management console.
Could not start the QlikView service on Local Computer
Error 1053:The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion
Anyone could let me know why Iam getting this error.
could you please provide some log files from your environment. Especially the ones from the repository. You will find the log files here: C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log
If possible, you could try a restart of the entire machine and see if that resolves the issue.
I had a similar issue on a particular server. It turned out that the services where timing out during the reload and in the end I found the post, below, which outlined how to tweak the windows registry to overcome the issue.
When I talked to support about the issue they recommended setting the Sense services to automatic delayed start. In my case that didn't work for me though it may resolved your issue.
Hope this helps.
what entries do you have in your log file ? I posted the log folder above.
Another thing you can try is what Rod mentioned in his response. There is a way in how you can increase the time out value for a service to start. This is what you would have to do:
To increase this value to 2 mins (120 seconds), follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
3. In the right pane, locate the ServicesPipeTimeout entry. Note If the ServicesPipeTimeout entry does not exist, you must create it. To do this, follow these steps:
a. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
b. Type ServicesPipeTimeout, and then press ENTER
4. Right-click ServicesPipeTimeout, and then click Modify.
5. Click Decimal, type 120000, and then click OK. This value represents the time in milliseconds before a service times out.
Note: 120000 milliseconds (2 minutes) is equal to what the default configuration should be. You may find you need increase this number. 300000 (5 minutes) may be more suitable.
6. Restart the computer.
I faced same problem. In my case setting higher ServicesPipeTimeout didn't help either.
So I added account for that service to local administrators group and it worked perfectly! The service is starting without any problems. Hope it will help you.
We did installed the Microsoft update and had the same issue.
I added the service User with full control to this folder C:\ProgramData\Qlik
Finally I could start the service
