Hi,

Under Sequrity Tab, "Allow admin using name and password"

is there any config file on server to change this?

Hi Johnan,

where are you finding this setting? I checked under Document Properties and User Preferences but can't see it.

Not applicable

From QV Server Reference Manual 9

Service by Service

This chapter describes the QlikView Server/Publisher components in detail.

9.1

QlikView Server

Settings and Configuration

File

Description

Settings.ini

Stores the QlikView Server (QVS) settings. Manual changes in this file require restart of QVS. This file is always stored in the “Data” folder (see Overview (page 53)).

Data %ProgramData%\QlikTech\QlikViewServer

C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer (this folder is a hidden one)

Shut down the QVS service and open a file Settings.ini

Add a line

AllowAlternateAdmin=1

just _before_ the line [Authentication]

Save the file and start QVS again. The admin user might be locked out if you have unsuccessfully tried to connect before. Go to AdministrativeTools-ComputerManagement-LocalUsers and unlock your user.
