Hi All, I have littleknowledgeof firewalls andsuch, but can anyonetell me how to setup a QlikViewWeb Serverin DMZmode?Isthereperhapsa guideand what are therequirements? We are running a SB Edition of QlikView Server and I want to access severall QV documents outside our domain without a VPN connection. Thx for youre help.
I need to know what to use in Custom Directory Path when trying to add new cutom users- the step before the last in your guide-. I get a default value like "Custom". But I get time-out when I use it. Do you know what we should use there?
Are you running a QlikView Enterprise Edition license of Server? Otherwise, you will only be able to use NTLM and NTFS, so no possiblity to use Custom directories here.
If you are using the EE, then the QMC should allow you to create users and groups that will be stored into an XML file and controlled by QlikView, and not by the OS. That's OK if you have a very small number of users (less than 10). This is not intented to replace LDAP, IBM Tivoli, Windows AD, or any other security directory in the market.
Go back to the Setup, Directory Service Connectors, Custom Directory
Click on the green plus icon, and add a new group, you can name it as you want, and set any administrator password you want: these users have nothing to do with actual security users in the LDAP or active directory.
Click Apply, the Custom directory is now created.
In the Users tab, click on the green plus icon to add users or groups, set passwords and so.
Thanks for your kind reply Miguel. But I still have the same error when I try to add something in step 3 above. I have no idea what I need to fill as Path.
I get this error:
DSC did not respond to request.
Last exception (for http://qlikpub1:4730/DSC/Service): The request channel timed out while waiting for a reply after 00:00:30. Increase the timeout value passed to the call to Request or increase the SendTimeout value on the Binding. The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout.
If I leave the path empty I get "Enter a path in order to save the changes" which means I need a valid path here.
Make sure your license allows you to use Custom and DMS, and make sure DMS is set in the QlikView Server, Security tab. Make sure as well that port 4730 (if not the whole firewall) is open between that computer and the computer that hosts the DSC. If you have a proxy, you will need to add an exception to that port as well.
"Path" is the equivalent to "domain" in Active directory, you can set any small word here, i. e.: CUSTOM Therefore, the custom users will be CUSTOM\Username1, CUSTOM\Username2, and so...
