Privileges for the QlikView services on a Windows 2008 server

Hi group,

We are testing QlikView to find out if fit suit our needs. Today we installed the QlikView server (standard edition, 30 day license) on our Windows sever 2008. This must be done with administrator rights.

But now all the services (including the web server services) are running with this account as logon. This account is member of the group Administrators and the group QlikView administrators. Is this really necessary? A member of the Administrator group on a Windows 2008 server has all privileges and that is of course potential dangerous.

It seems to me that this level of right shouldn't be needed to let the QlikView server do its job. Especially for the web server services. Is a lower logon privilege possible for the QlikView services? Or can we run some of the services 'Local service' or 'Local System'?


Regards,
Freek

Privileges for the QlikView services on a Windows 2008 server

Hi, I have the same question. We ran into the same issue that we don't want to put a service account in the administrator group.

I'm very curious about an alternative

No, it is not. However, you will need to follow the attached document step by step to get it to work.

Also, this is not supported by QlikTech Support

We use Qlikview-9, Is there also such a document (minimum security permissions needed) for this qlikview version (Version 9). But the document that you sent me is not a solution for my problem that the service account may not be a local administrator.

What I understand is :

1 It has to be a service account (logon as a service)

2. It has to be a local administrator.

In my situation only functional accounts can be local administrators.

I am not sure what you are saying. The document is written to allow an account that is not a local admin to run the services. Yes, any account that runs a service has to be a service account and logon as a service.

Here is the document for version 9. The only real difference between the two are the port setup.

Hi,

I have not done anything with this for version 11. I would think it would very close to being the same.
