Fail to start Distribution Service in QlikView Server

Hi experts,

I've been recently facing a problem on starting the Distribution Service in my server.

And, the error message shown is ambiguous - "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

Please help. Thanks.


Best Regards,

Re: Fail to start Distribution Service in QlikView Server

Did you check the contents of the different Log files, as advised in the screenshot? The Distribution Service has a base log file in directory C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\DistributionService\1\Log. The log file name starts with Root_... There may be many, but it should be easy to find one that contains startup error messages...
