Hi there, all Qlik Techies..
One of our client wants to change the machine for QlikView Server. and since they are using the old version of QlikView Server (11.2 SR12) so they are also interested to upgrade the version (to QlikView 12 SR2) as well.
They are using Only QlikView Server with some reload tasks, NO PUBLISHER.
Right now they are using QlikView Server on Windows Server 2008 R2 and they are planning to move for Windows Server 2012.
Anyone who have gone through with this or have some knowledge on how to do this activity, then kindly share the details or steps.
The objective is to Migrate to new machine and Upgrade QlikView version with the Tasks and Licenses assigned to the users.
