BATCH Reload : General Script Error

Hello,

I am working at the IT Dept.

I am new in Qlikview and I dont know how to use Qlikview ^^ but I am charged to manage the reloads.

For that, I have created a BATCH Script that launches a reload.

Script

QVDistributionService.exe -r="D:\Qlikview\QVD\QVD.qvw" -out="D:\LOGS\QVD.log"

QVDistributionService.exe -r="D:\Qlikview\MODELS\MODEL.qvw" -out="D:\LOGS\MODEL.log"

QVDistributionService.exe -r="D:\Qlikview\APPS\Qlikview_Experimantal.qvw" -out="D:\LOGS\APPS.log"

WhenI run that script from Task Scheduler, I got some errors like this :

If I reload the application from the Qlikview client (I mean open the QVW model file and clik on Reload button), the reload is OK.

After the manual reload, I can run successfully my batch file.

So, maybe I have forgotten something in my script ?

Whats wrong with that ?

Thank you for your help.

Use runas to use the same credentials to reload the documents as the QDS uses.

Re: BATCH Reload : General Script Error

This kind of failure happens quite often because the server services run with a different user which missed the proper access rights to certain files, databases and similar.

If not done yet I suggest to enable the script-log within the document properties of a qvw to see why the script-execution failed.

Thank you for the quick answer.

The scripts rans with the local administrator privileges. The services runs with a local Qlikview_user

Can you tell me how to enable the script log ? And where I can find the logs after the reload fails ?

Thank you

Re: BATCH Reload : General Script Error

Any particular reason why you are using Cmd files to simulate tasks, while you do seem to have a Distribution Engine at your disposal?

Re: BATCH Reload : General Script Error

Marcus is onto something (again ).

Karim, you say that if you reload the document in QV Desktop (thereby implying that you save after a reload), the batch file runs ok. That means that a desktop reload will set different permissions on the saved file, after which a QDS reload will be able to overwrite the saved document.

Apparently in the script log you posted, the QDS has problems saving either the temporary file or the end result. That is, if the GROUP BY statement is the last statement in your load script.

Re: BATCH Reload : General Script Error

Yes Peter, there is a reason.

Qlikview developpers cannot have access to the server. It is  security / policital / stupid ? internal policy. Anyway, they cannot connect to run manually the reloads and this absolutely not possible to change that (even if I would like to) , but they need to reload the application when they want.

So, I have created the command file for the reload, so the developpers can just send a trigger file to the serveur to execute the script.

Re: BATCH Reload : General Script Error

Peter,

in order to do the same job as a manual reload; is there anything I could add or change in my batch script ?

Re: BATCH Reload : General Script Error

Two alternatives:

  • Make them Document Administrators
  • Add a trigger "on an external event" and provide your Developers with QMSEDX or any other tool that can remotely trigger task execution.

Use runas to use the same credentials to reload the documents as the QDS uses.

I will try that and let you know. It may take a week.
