Changing the machine name for QlikView Server installation

QlikView Server was installed on a machine with the name "X". The name of the machine was changed to "Y". QlikView Server still works well if I am looking into Computer Management / "Services" and also it allows users to connect and use the QVWs very well. The problem is that QMC and QEMC are showing that the services are not running anymore, so I can't change any of its settings (like changing user cals). I thinks this happens because QMC still shows the old name of the server, even though I uninstalled and then reinstalled QVS. Anyone has an ideea about how to solve this situation? Re-installation doesn't work, or maybe I should clear some additional files/registries before a new installation.

Thank you.

Changing the machine name for QlikView Server installation

Hello,

The QlikView Administrators group is local in your machine, so check that it exists and has properly set users members and the account used for the running services is in this group.

Hope that helps

You need to modify some XML files. See my post here: http://community.qlik.com/forums/p/32988/127682.aspx
