QV Server Upgrade Requirements

Hi Guys,

I'm about to upgrade our QV SR3 to SR5, I will be doing it for the first time and I just wanted to ask you what I would need beside the installers. I don't want to destroy our system, so my most important doubts are:
1. is QV installer "intelligent" so it will just upgrade the core and preserve the existing configuration, or will I need to configure everything from the scratch?
2. Will it recognize which components are installed?
3. What will I need to do or configure beside running the installer?


Our current QV version is: 11.20.12018.0 SR3 64bit for Windows.

In the list of QV services I can see the following:

SERVICE_NAME: QlikView Directory Service Connector

SERVICE_NAME: QlikView Distribution Service

SERVICE_NAME: QlikView Management Service

SERVICE_NAME: QlikView Server

SERVICE_NAME: QlikView Webserver

Thanks so much in advance for any help!

Regards,
Pawel

Hi Pawel,

The installer will upgrade you system without too much intervention. If you have more than one server you will have to run it on each server. The installer will see what is installed and only install what is there now.

Thanks Bill. I just wanted to be sure and not forgot about anything in case installer would require configuring from scratch.

Have anice day!
