I am just starting planning for migration from 8.20 to 9.00.
What I would like to do is to configure a dedicated server with v9 to test document compatibility etc. I saw in the QVS Reference Manual that there is such a thing as a test server licence which looked like it might be the baby for me. However it appears it costs rather a lot of money!
I want to create a test environment with v9 and so it is the licencing issues that concern me. The server would exist on the same network as the 'live' and there seems to be no evaluation period with a server install like you used to get with Developer. What if I just install server v9 - will it work without an LEF? What would happen if I used the same LEF as the 'live' (I dont want to even think about trying this!).
I agree with your point about the test licence - at 50% the cost of a 'normal' one I bet Qliktech dont sell many!
I don't think so, that you can install QVS without LEF. But, I think you can try to create a new server using the same license. I can't imagine to use test server each time you want to migrate to new version. I would go for it .
