    QV Publisher Cluster

    Victor Bodnar

      Hi guys,


      I would need instructions for procedure and troubleshooting in setting up a Publisher Cluster.

      I have a distributed installation on 3 machines and now I want to add another Publisher so I can have 2.


      I would need if someone could help me on the steps of creating a Publisher Cluster.


      Thanks a lot.

          To start what value do you have for



          If you don't have this setting in your LEF file with a number equal to the number of Distribution services you want to run it will not work.

              Currently 1.

              We will purchase another Publisher License. so I guess we will have 2.


              our current setup is 1 qv server and 1 publisher so one complete installation running off of 3 machines.

              we are planning to add 1 more machine running a publisher to help with reloads for some applications.


              if i am explaining this wrong, please feel free to correct me.

                  please speak to the contact person from Qlik and make sure that you buy the cluster one instead of buying individual 2

                    Hi Victor,


                    Your account manager can guide you through the process and can advise you on what licensing you will need. To cluster any Qlik product that requires a license the license has to have that information in it.


                    To Cluster QVSs

                    NUMBER_OF_CLUSTER_NODES;4;;   with 4 being the number of QVSs.


                    For the distribution service (Publisher)


                    NUMBER_OF_XS;2;;  with 2 being the number of distribution services.


                    The above numbers can be more depending on what you purchase.
