Webserver on multiple NICs

QV11.2

No IIS

I have QlikView Webserver installed on computer XYZ.

Computer XYZ has multiple NICs:

xxx.xxx.xxx.1 is on the NIC named George

xxx.xxx.xxx.2 is on the NIC named Fred

DNS entry for XYZ is xxx.xxx.xxx.1

F5 entry for XYZ is xxx.xxx.xxx.2

How can I get the WebServer to listen either on both IP addresses, or xxx.xxx.xxx.2?

Re: Webserver on multiple NICs

Hi Richard,

The webserver should automatically pick up both IP-addresses. Is there not a DNS entry for both IP-addresses? A computer can have its computername/FQDN stored by two IP-addresses. Your DNS rules can rule which one should be the primary.

If you want to loadbalance (e.g. round-robin) in front of the QVWS, you need a third-party tool or a DNS solution allowing this.

Regards,

Erik

Re: Webserver on multiple NICs

Erik,

I apologize for not having the exact information needed:

DNS Name XYZ is on xxx.xxx.xxx.1

DNS Name QlikView is on xxx.xxx.xxx.2

The QlikView address does not respond.

Re: Webserver on multiple NICs

Does it work if you enter the IP-address to the machine and access the server that way?

Re: Webserver on multiple NICs

It works using the machine name, it does not work when accessing via the F5 address.

Re: Webserver on multiple NICs

Can we rule out the F5 software by only using DNS?

Does it work using the IP-address to the second NIC?

Re: Webserver on multiple NICs

Eric,

We found the issue to be with the IP addresses assigned to the NICs incorrectly; sorry I missed this discussion.

Additionally, this piece of information came to me via email.

Netsh http add iplisten ipaddress=
