Migrate Qlikview Configuration from a server to another server

Hi All,

I have Qlikview server and Qlikview Publisher. I'm trying to migrate the same Qlikview server configuration from a production server to disaster recovery server, is there anyway or the steps on which files need to copy? Thanks.

Regards..

Re: Migrate Qlikview Configuration from a server to another server

I can´t use two Qlikview Servers in the same time with the same license key. Qlikview uses servername to store your configurations file.

I recommend you document this configurations of Qlikview or rename disaster recovery server to the old server and paste c:\programdata\qliktech\*. This directory has all configurations.

Attention: use the same version of Qlikview to restore this directory.

Hi, Thanks for your reply. Means basically I just need to move all the files in c:\programdata\qliktech\* to DR server, hence all the configurations are copied to DR server?

c:\programdata\Qliktech hold all config files, correct. So, you need to move all other directories configured like mounted folder and root folder, distribution services, etc.

But, c:\programdata\Qliktech with the same server name will works.

Hi,

If different server name, any place or configuration file can make changes? to switch from server A called serverA to server B called serverB
