Moving Publisher License

How can I uninstall a Publisher license from a physical server and reuse on another.

On the QEMC > System > Licenses > Qlikview Publisher > Qlikview Publisher License tab, there are 2 options "Update License from Server" and "Apply License". There isn't an option to remove or uninstall a license.

I'd like to reconfigure my environment without having to uninstall/reinstall the software.

Pertinent info: Qliview v9 SR4.

Thanks in advance,

B

I would stop the QlikView Publisher services on the server where you don't want QlikView Publisher and then install the QlikView Publisher on the other server applying the same license as the other.

I haven't tried this with Publisher, but it does work when you need to move QlikView Server from one physical server to another and avoid that the two QlikView Servers try to create a cluster since they use the same license and uninstall the whole software.

Regards.

Which service should I stop? The "QlikView Publisher Command Center Service" is the only service that has "Publisher" in the name, but it is necessary for the QEMC to provide any data.

Cheers,

Stop just the command center since you should just have one Command Center per Publisher installation. The other services can be shared with QlikView Server and you can have multiple instances of these services running on different machines per Publisher installation. Here's a excerpt from the QVS references just to make sure.

The components that will be installed are:
• The QlikView Management Service is a set of html based web pages that are
used to configure what the QlikView Publisher will do.
• The Command Center is the central coordinating component in QlikView
Publisher. It is responsible for maintaining the QlikView Publisher Repository
(QVPR) and keeping track of the different components. A QlikView
Publisher installation has only one Command Center.
• The Distribution Service is the component that is responsible for performing
the preparation and delivery of the QlikView files. A QlikView Publisher
installation can contain many Distribution services located on different
machines.
• The Directory Service Connector is responsible for communicating with the
Directory Service that keeps track of all the users and groups in your environment.
You need to have one Directory Service per Directory Service Provider
(DSP). A DSP is a connection to a specific Directory Service. The
included DSPs allows you to connect to Active Directory, NT4 domains,
Local Users and Custom Users. Custom Users are users that only exist inside
QlikView Publisher and have no matching Windows user attached to them.
