Single Server Installation of Server and Publisher Help Please

Hi,

I would be incredibly grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. I've been tasked with downloading, installing and configuring this Qlikview product to report on the Enterprise's Oracle Financials system and was wondering what documentation, tutorials were available.

I've been allocated a physical 64bit Windows server running 2008 R2 and have admin access to it, but that's about all. My experience generally is with Oracle on unix and so all this windows malarky is kinda new to me.

I was lead to believe I would need an Oracle client installaion including odbc drivers, is this correct?

Thanking all in advance,

Ravi

That is correct. The attached document is a little old, but my understanding the steps are the same with the newer drivers.

Many Thanks for that Bill, that'll come in handy.

Is there such a thing as a QlikView server/publisher installation video?

You certainly don't need the full Enterprise install as on that document. We use the Oracle Client install, which is still quite large, but we want some of the other components available there.

It should be possible to use the Oracle Instant Client packages to get access to the OLEDB drivers. They are much smaller. You'll need to instal a number of Instant Client components (Basic + ODAC + maybe ODBC). Details here:

I have found this to work and not the others. This document was written by a person that worked Oracle for years.

Many thanks Paul, I haven't had cause to use the instant client yet, I could give it a go.

To be honest the Oracle bit is not so much the issue, it is the installation of QlikView which is the daunting bit.

I've heard that we require a clustered file system to hold the qlikview data files and that it needs IIS to be running on the server or alternatively it comes with it's own web server.
