I've install the QVS on our machine. The name of the machine was 'BI-Qlikview', after the installation We've changed the machine name to 'Qlikview'. I've removed the QVS and reinstalled it.
Now the server is writing that all services are down and at the System>Setup it gaves the message 'The Qlikview server could not be contacted' as it's trying to connect to the older machine name 'BI-Qlikview'.
I'll appreciate your help on how to solve this issue.
Changing the server name is never a good idea. The problem is that the server name is used in to many files for configuration. If you are still having issue, this is what I would try.
1. Uninstall the Qlik Products.
2. delete all Qlik folders
3. reinstall the Qlik Products.
If you don't want to do that, you can go through all the configuration files and try to give the old server name and replace it with the new one. Also, you will have to do that to the QVPR XML files also.
