QlikView Server installation - couple of questions
I have recently installed the latest QV server on a VM server. I have 80 users CALS and associated LEF file from the previous server install (which is now switched off).
I am using LDAP connection to verify users and QMC is recognising users when opening documents on the Web portal.
On my previous install, users who had been allocated a User CAL could connect via the desktop client to pull a license down via 'Connect to Server' which would then allow them to be licensed. I cannot get this to work on my new install.
....OR at least question - On my new install, I have the documents folder set in C:. Is that ok. On my previous install it was set to G:

However - I don't know how your LDAP is integrated with your Windows computers ... so maybe this will not work automatically in that case you can do a file open in server anyway but select ALTERNATE IDENTITY like this:
The benefit of setting both the LOCATIONS for QlikView Management Console (URL) and QlikView Server AccessPoint (URL) in User Preferences is that you will get these extra menu options on your TOOLS menu:
