Qlikview patching

First time I am going to apply patch on the server. So i need your suggestion -

We are using QlikView 11 SR 10 and have a plan to upgrade it to QlikView 11 SR12. We have three servers-

Machine 1-

QV directory service

QV server service

Machine 2-

QV distribution service

QV management service

Machine 3-

IIS

Please let me know what screen will come while upgrade(Machine 1,2,3).

Can I select individual componet while upgrade(for machine 1- DSC, QS 2- QDS ,QMS 3- IIS?

Re: Qlikview patching

Hi,

1. I beleive license file not required to upgrade This is correct.

2. Existing installation doesn't required to be uninstall This is correct

3. If we upgrade SR10 to QV new version 12 then is it straight forward upgrade That is correct.

4.There will be no more RISK if we take back up of QLIKTECH folder will not  I would back up the QVPR folder. This holds all your Publisher task.

Hi,

There will be not screen to show up when you are running the upgrade. It will see what you have installed and upgrade those items.

The only think you need to watch out for is if you have a Qlik Service installed and disable, the upgrade will enable that service.

It will be helpful if you please let us know that while upgrading QlikView IIS which option can come and which component will I install?I think IIS only we need to install.

Re: Qlikview patching

Hi,

Are you doing a new install or upgrade? If you are doing an upgrade the installer will match the items that are already installed. We only put Qlik files on and don't change any feature that has been installed on IIS.
