Discussion Board for collaboration related to QlikView Deployment.
We are looking to upgrade our QV. It seems that it is a straight forward upgrade, however there are few point i wanted to get help on.
Go to Solution.
normally this is a straight forward action, nevertheless with no warranty
some remarks from my experience:
0.1 Backup isn't a bad idea, I hope you do that regularly
0.2 Being local admin and member of qvadmin is recommended
1. yes, uninstall the old version is necessary, but no problem. Settings and folders are not lost
2. no upgrade of licence needed (assuming you have a software service contract including new version)
5. Update the server and all the windows clients (no qvadmin necessary); don't forget the client installed on the QV-server itself, if any
6. Start/stop QV-services
7. upgrade plugin on every pc
8. check and test . . .
Apart from above
I think Updating user plugin on every PC not necessary,as we upgraded last month from version 10 to version 11 and there was no complain from users until now.
Upgrading was done on new server while old server was operational,so users are not obstructed from accessing reports.
Even if you have some backwards comparability in the plugin is the recommendation still to use same version as on the server. I have seen several customers run into issues based on users with old plugin accessing the server.
I aggree totally with Hampus,
it is always a good idea having the whole software package up to date, this means fitting versions.
before plugin upgrade, is clearing cache recommended.
during testing, what do you test, what could go wrong. are you only testing if each dashboard loads up fine.
another thing is do i have to open each dashboard into current version of qv and save it, is it necessary.
clear cache not recommended
testing: one application is enough. See if it is working.
Check next morning your load - tasks. This is for my oppion the only critical path. May be you have to start them manually (once).
As per QlikTech upgrade manual it says to clear cache, why do you not recommend we do so, have you experinced any issue when doing that?
Do I need to open and save each app in new upgraded client of qlikview.
The plugin should always be the same or higher than the server.
