QVDistributionService.exe

Good Morning,

I have a problem with the QVDistributionService service not starting, it's been running fine for weeks then it's just stopped. Having tried many different things including changing the user that runs the service, all the other QV services start using the same user.

I have uninstalled & re-install QV Server 11 but still won't start, the message is from the event viewer:

Log Name:      Application

Source:        QlikViewServer

Date:          14/11/2013 09:22:08

Event ID:      300

Task Category: None

Keywords:      Classic

User:          N/A

Computer:

Description:

The description for Event ID 300 from source QlikViewServer cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

Re: QVDistributionService.exe

Hi, I am facing the same error message in the event-log. Anyhow our Distribution Service is running fine. So probably the problem of the Distribution service not starting has another source. It would be interessting to know about the reason of this event-log message anyhow.

Re: QVDistributionService.exe

HI,

What do you get for error when you try to start the service? Have you try to rename or delate the folder:

C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\DistributionService

The service start should create a new one folder will all setting like before without the logs ofcource.

Let me know if this work.

Re: QVDistributionService.exe

have the same problem, renaming does not help, but have found entries in the c:\ProgramData\QlikTech\DistributionService\1\Log\

The mentioned Notification.xml has only the below entry:

quote

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<Root/>

unquote

After deletion it is created automatically with same entry.

Any other idea?

Edith says: it may help to attach the log files

Re: QVDistributionService.exe

Have your IT department installed anti virus software?

If so,  C:\ProgramData\QlikTech has to be removed by rule to not be scanned.

Re: QVDistributionService.exe

Can you describe your setup?

Do you have two clustered Publishers?

No

We have no publisher at all.

Re: QVDistributionService.exe

Ok

Can you run any jobs or isn't it working at all?

BTW

Found some errors in our log also. :-)

Anti virus program problem will probably generate these errors:

"The process cannot access the file '\DistributionService\LoadBalancer.xml' because it is being used by another process."
