CAL and Doc users suddenly anassigned

hi all,

all of a sudden, i've received emails from users saying they can't access the Qlikview.

checking the QMC reveiled that suddenly ALL of the users (CAL and Document) are unassigned and all of the licenses are free to assign...

any thoughts why did it happen? what could be the reason?

thanks,

Shay

Re: CAL and Doc users suddenly anassigned

I know this can happen in installations that have a very large number of CALs and users. I don't know why this happens, except that the software may be shaky. Are you using a not-too-recent SR with hundreds of users.

The basis for disappearing assignments is usually a corrupt CalData.pgo QlikView Server configuration file.

Make a backup at regular intervals, and copy the backup file back to the document root and restart the QVS.

If this happens more than once, you can consider switching to dynamically assigned CALs and user permissions in Section Access. That way, users with permission to access documents will be managed by Section Access and not by the QMC, while whenever the CAL assignments disappear, they will be automatically reassigned when a user revisits a document. Not worth the effort if you have <100 users, I guess.

Best,

Peter

Hi Peter,

unfortunately, that's not the case.

the machine, hosting the QV server, apparently, crushed (storage issue) and that caused that issue (not sure how yet).

There is the following discussion regarding that issue:
