where to config/update the Active Directory/LDAP IP

Hi, all,

Recently, our IT changed the IP (10.1.12.10 as cause the error in the log file below) of the server where hold the users and groups for our QV development server.

Our DSC service failed after the change. We try to find where the IP is set for the DSC LDAP configuration, checked:

C:\Program Files\QlikView\Directory Service Connector\QVDirectoryServiceConnector.exe.config

but can not find it.

Also searched some time in the community, but did not find it yet.

Can any QV server expert help us?

Detail info of what checked is as below:

The log file from C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\DirectoryServiceConnector\Log

Re: where to config/update the Active Directory/LDAP IP

On the server where the DSC service is running, check the folder C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\DirectoryServiceConnector\Resources. It should contain an xml configuration file for every DSP you defined in QMC. If I understand you well, there should be only one.

Open the file in notepad, change the LDAP location (between <path>...</path> tags), save and restart the DSC service.

Although it's kind of weird that the DSC crashes because a Directory service can't be found. Chicken and egg: how can you change an incorrect configuration if the service that lets you define/modify those configurations refuses to start because of that configuration?

Ah, I know. Simply because you try to login with an account that is defined by that same LDAP (changed) server. Has your QlikView server been rebooted to make it aware of that AD Controller change?

Best,

Peter

Re: where to config/update the Active Directory/LDAP IP

Peter,

Thanks. Yes, your understand me correctly. We use the user account defined by the changed LDAP server.

Found the .xml file and updated it. Restarted all the QV services. The error from the log is gone.

And after a reboot, the DSC service is still not alive. But not the issue as mentioned in the original question.

From the error info when try to open the .qvw, I get some clue.

I will try if I can fix it and then update here later.

Hi, all,

Just a further update of the issue I had later after modify the LDAP configuration.

After update the LDAP, then the log error from DSC is gone, but the DSC is still down. And got the error below when clicks on .qvw in QMC->Documents with Document CALs.

The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Ntlm'. The authentication header received from the server was 'NTLM'.

We later figure it out, that is because we blocked the user that is used for the login of DSC in

QMC->System->Setup->Directory Service Connetors->DSC@*->Login

After update that, then the DSC service is back.

Hope the update helps others.
