Re: Restoring Certificate during Upgrade

Hi, I don't remember to have to update anything on certificates when upgrading QlikView server. 

Only when the certificate is close to finish his valid dates and I have to install a new one.

Anyway,  installing certificate is usually an easy task (at least if you have a valid certificate)

Hi Ruben,

Thanks for your reply. Can you please suggest how to handle certificates in case of migration?

Re: Restoring Certificate during Upgrade

A few days ago, we talked about that backing up your certificates is an important part of your SQL Server recovery strategy. A recovery strategy cannot be complete without a way to execute a restore. Yet, SQL Server does not have a RESTORE CERTIFICATE statement prepaidgiftbalance.com

Re: Restoring Certificate during Upgrade

Hi, here is a support article with the steps. Also the zip at the end of the article has a word document with more easy to follow instructions: https://support.qlik.com/articles/000002484

As comstock posted, you'll need a copy of your cetificate, if you don't have a copy you should export the one that is installed on the server. Note than a migration is diffferent than an upgrade. Migration usually means you move to another server while an upgrade usually is done on the same server.
