Book your calendar for the upcoming Q&A with Qlik: Qlik Replicate Sources and TargetsQ&A session scheduled for October 24th at 10:00 AM EDT. It is a live Q&A session with a panel of Qlik experts. Bring your questions, and we do our best to answer them.
The Qlik Replicate and R4Z versions you install must be part of the same release, which can either be an initial release or a patch/service release. This means that if you upgrade Qlik Replicate, you must also upgrade your R4Z installation (to the version that correlates with the Qlik Replicate release you are installing), unless it has the same build number as your currently installed R4Z. Note that despite being part of the same release, the Qlik Replicate and R4Z build numbers (reflected in their file names) might not be the same.
For example, Qlik Replicate May 2022 SR2 includes the following files:
QlikReplicate_2022.5.0.499_X64.zip (the Replicate installer)
QlikReplicate_2022.5.0.290_r4z.zip (the R4Z installer).

When installing and using the DB2 z/OS endpoint in Qlik Replicate, WLM tasks on the mainframe may get cancelled. There are multiple root causes for this, but a common one can be addressed by reviewing the execution priority (WLM settings).
