Qlikview Web Server & NTFS

Hi,

Does anyone know of any detailed information of how the QV Web Server uses NTFS for authentication. Have an unusual problem where two users have he same settings as others but can't view a report until they are entered into the server local admin group.

Thanks,

Robert

Hi,

The Webserver does Authentication and sends that information to the QVS server. The QVS server then does the authorization. See the below post on the subject.

Do they both have the same NTFS permissions to the actual qvw file ?

Note:  The file itself as opposed to the folder it is in.
