Are Cluster Licence needed?

Hallo,

we want to build an environment with one Publisher and two different Servers (one for Custom Users with external Access (Internet) and one Server only for internal user (Active Directory).

To build this, we Need a Publisher Licence, thats easy.

But do we Need a Cluster Server Licence?

And if so, do we Need

NUMBER_OF_CLUSTER_NODES;2;;

or

NUMBER_OF_CLUSTER_NODES;3;;?

Both Servers will be for different Users and different documents.

Thanks for your help.

Sorry, replied too fast.

If you want two separate QVS environments, you may want to use two QVS licenses without clustering. A cluster will share (and load balance) resources so that you may not be able to get isolated QlikView environments. I even think that nodes in a cluster should be able to "see" each other.

The first one.

Note that you can also accomplish this using a single QVS and two web servers, one inside your LAN and one in the DMZ.
