Hi

 

What's the easier way to move assigned cals from one server to a new server? Can i just copy and paste a file?

@kev6brown  You have to be using the Same License Number and can't be using the local directory.

Go to your old server and look in C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer. Copy all the PGO files and the Full.dat. Shutdown the server (can't use license on two servers).

On new server license QVS and once it is license stop QlikView server. Now copy the above saved files to C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer and then look in the Root Folder and replace the PGO files that are their (should be only a couple). Restart the QlikView server and then check the licensing in the QMC.

This should work, but if it doesn't you have only lost a little time. If it does you have saved a lot of time.

If the issue is solved please mark the answer with Accept as Solution.

Hi @kev6brown,

In addition to Lucas's good advice, we have an article that discusses this process - Migrating QlikView Server without losing CAL assignments?  So try the steps listed within the article.
