Moving Folder Structure from Personal Edition to Enterprise Edition?

Hi,

How can we move folder structures when we configure qlikview Servers from personal edition to enterprise edition without any loss of the data .and do we need to check any connectivity from personal edition to enterprise level edition.

Hi,

as far as I know you don't have to change a thing about your folder structure. Well, I might be misunderstanding - the PE is about the client, not about the server, no?

Anyway, I think the file_paths stay exactly the same, so there's no apparent reason (apparent to me) why you'd have to change anything. That would be bad marketing indeed if you did ...

But make sure you organize it well. Discussed here quickintelligence.co.uk/qlikview-folder-structures/

Sorry!! May be my question has to be rephrased...

Currently we are handling personal Edition(Sever) and we have the folder Structure already ..Now we need to configure to client server technology. So would like to check about moving of the existing folder structure to the enterprise edition servers as paths would be different etc..

Re: Moving Folder Structure from Personal Edition to Enterprise Edition?

Hi,

so you have a PE (the client_software) installed on the server?

Again, I think if you are going to have an SBE or EE server and the client_software only on the client_PCs, then you do not have to change anything. Just try and see, if any problems pop up, just come back here.

As far as I know,

There are 4 Editions of QlikView Server :

•Enterprise Edition (EE)

•Small Business Edition (SBE)

•Information Access Server (IAS)

•QlikView Extranet Server (QES)

There is nothing called Personal Edition Server. Are you talking about licensed edition and personal edition?

Re: Moving Folder Structure from Personal Edition to Enterprise Edition?

There is no QlikView Server Personal Edition, so whatever you set-up in a QVS environment, it will run as-is as long as you like it.

A QlikView Desktop environment however can be totally different from a QlikView Server environment. And the best thing to do is work the other way around: make your Desktop environment a lookalike of your server environment. If you do such a thing, publishing new documents or new releases becomes very straightforward, no code changes required.

Another possible solution could be to split environments on the QlikView Server platform itself, and use Desktop through an RDP session. That way you have no network transfers, you'll have automatic backups and you can work in a team on the same project.

shankarece already provided you with a link to more information. Another source of information on Enterprise Frameworks (how to go about creating and publishing documents, what file structure to use, what data layers etc.) is the QlikView Deployment Framework which is a community group (membership required)

Best,

Peter
