Accesspoint is working with out service is up and running

Hi All,

I am using QV Server 11.2 SR3 with IIS as web server.

I recently checked my applications were opening normally even when QSS was down.

Is there any new feature introduced to run qv accesspoint with out service ?

Regards,

Karthi

Re: Accesspoint is working with out service is up and running

The QlikView server manual says this about QSS...

10.5  Web Server

The web server can be the built-in QlikView Web Server (QVWS) or Microsoft IIS. QVWS is installed as aWindows service during a default, complete installation of QlikView Server. When IIS is used, the same functionality is provided by a set of ASPX pages and a special support service, QlikView Settings Service(QSS). QSS acts as the management interface for settings used by the ASPX pages

I read this as saying that QSS will process setting changes for the AccessPoint. QSS is an interface for these settings, it is not running the AccessPoint. The AccessPoint itself is delivered by IIS and is not stopped by the QSS service not running.

Qlikview Setting Service

Re: Accesspoint is working with out service is up and running

QSS handles communication between QlikView services and IIS. The QlikView server service is QVS.

Is your QVS service running.

I actually stopped Qlikview Setting Service. Now Accesspoint should not show or render the applications as I have IIS as my web server.

But I could see my access point working with out any issues.

You need to stop QVS if you want to to stop the AccessPoint.

No !!! ..Not really.. accesspoint will not render/list reports if QVS is not running. Access point is actually running behind Qlikview Setting Service.

So Accesspoint itself should not get open when QSS is down.

When QVS is down it will say "No Server".
