I have unmounted all folders on QVS but still some older documents are showing in the QVS server documents.
How can I clean these out?
These are old documents that I accessed at one time but they are no longer relevant.
Go to Solution.
Turned out to be related to "orphaned" Doc CALs.
It's worth noting that the documents were showing the the document names in CAPS but the original files were not in caps. I wonder if this is QV's way of saying you broke something - which I did.
If you are running SBE here's how to get the orphaned CALs back.
Is it possible there are qvw's in your "Root Folder"? Keep in mind that any root folders and mounted folders also expose qvws in subdirectories.
That was my first thought.
I checked my root folder (C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Documents) but there are only a few .pgo files.
Could the server be caching something?
I think I had Doc CALs assigned to these documents when i changed the qvw names. Could that be a contributing factor?
The way I got rid of them:
The most important thing is to first Delete the tasks before doing anything else.
Thanks for the tip. I think we are on the right track but I don't see Distribution Services
Do you have Publisher?
If not then the folder where you have all your files and from which Qlikview picks it up and reloads it.
(In Documents Tab, the folder where all the files reside)
I think this may be related to not removing users before renaming/removing the documents from the mounted folders...
I have 20 Doc CALs and it says all CALs are assigned. Clicking through the documents visible under Documents > User Documents I don't see that any Doc CALs are assigned to any of the documents.
I'm thinking that the CALs are somehow reserved and may be linked to these documents that i still see as visible under User Documents.
I don't have Publisher.
These docs resided in a folder that I have since unmounted.
Reading this thread, it seems that I have orphaned some Doc CALs by changing file names or removing files before removing users and un-allocating the Doc CALs.
I am indeed running SBE, which seems to be more difficult to recover orphaned Doc CALs.
