Urgent Help required: service user validation failed

I am attempting to upgrade a customers Sense Site from June 2017 to February 2018. I am logged in as the service account.

Following the entry of the Service credential password and clicking next, I got an error "Service User Validation Failed".

1. the enter password is correct
2. the user is a member of the local administrators group
3. the user is a member of a Qlik Sense Services user group which has logon as a services privileges.
4. I have also to run the upgrade as my account, but get the same issue.

best regards

Andy

Re: Urgent Help required: service user validation failed

Is the command line option skipvalidation able to be used to work-around this validation failure?

Ended up swapping the service user to a local user and upgrade progressed fine

Re: Urgent Help required: service user validation failed

We did faced the same issue when setting up the Qlik Sense Server

As mentioned by Levi Turnor use command propmpt -> go to the directory where the "Qlik_Sense_setup.exe" exists and Run Qlik_Sense_setup.exe -skipvalidation Qlik_Sense_setup.exe skipvalidation=1

This should solve the "Service User Validation Failed" error. Thanks....
