Schedule Downtime for Access Point

Dear All,

because of heavy loads and parallel user activity on our Qlikview Server / Publisher Environment, we are thinking about scheduling regular downtimes for the Access Point. 

Probably every night, during a defined time slot. 

Can anybody advise the best way to achieve this? We are using Qlikview 12 Server / Publisher with Microsoft IIS Webserver.

Thank you in advance!

Regards

K_Wilde

Hi,

Ray's post is a way to do it, but the users would still see the documents in the Accesspoint and would try to open them. 

Being you are using IIS, I would set up a redirect that would send them to another web page that would provide the information that the QlikView Site is offline. During that time.

HI @K_Wilde,

In addition to Ray's & Bill's suggestion, you could created Windows Scheduled Task to start and stop the QlikView Server Service. Doing so would result in a "No Server" error being returned while the QVS services was stopped.

Hello ,

The QMC under the Qlikview Web Servers > AccssPoint > AccessPoint Setting s ( Has a Custom System Message) that can display a message when the user opens the accesspoint.

Great, many thanks to all who contributed solutions. I think we will go with the Windows Scheduled Task.
