    Qlikview on a new server

    Laura Sébille

      Hello everyone,

       

      We currently have Qlikview Server (and all QV services) on a server A.

       

      My company is merging with another one and we have to move Qlikview to a new server (which is in another datacenter).

       

      According to you, what are the steps to do it properly ?

       

      I guess i will first have to install Qliview server on that new server.

       

      I don't want to have to parametrize all the reload and distribute task and attribute the cals again... Is it possible ?

       

      If some of you already went through that, I would be happy to hear from you

       

      Thank you

          Hello Laura,

           

          There are a few ways to-do this, but it might be a good idea to see if you can get a trial licence from Qlik to mirror your existing server setup, that way you can run both servers together whilst moving the settings and users over.

           

          There is also a white paper called 'QV 11 Upgrade and Migration Document' which you can find on the community, it has a section at the end regarding moving servers.

           

          The other way is yes to re-create the reload schedules and CAL etc settings again on the new server manually from fresh.

            Hi Laura,

             

            Migrating the publisher jobs from one server to another server -

            The following assumes a clean install on your production server (Server2) and all tasks set up on your development server (Server1). Unless you have separate license keys, don't license Server2 yet, because that will attempt to create a cluster and will corrupt your QVPR.

            Step 1: Stop all services on Server2

            Step 2: Rename the QVPR folder on Server2 to something else, and copy the QVPR folder from Server1 to Server2.

            Step 3: Change all references to Server1 in the following files to Server2:

            C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\DirectoryResource.xml
            C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\DistributionService.xml
            C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\DSCResource.xml
            C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\QDSCluster.xml
            C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\QlikViewServerResource.xml
            C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\QVSCluster.xml
            C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\QvWebServiceResource.xml

            Step 4: Start all services on Server2 and stop all services on Server1.

            Step 5: License Server2.
