    Qlikview 9 Server with IIS

      Hi

      I have recently tried to install Qlikview 9 server on XP. If I choose the default installation ie using the Qlikview web server then AccessPoint will work fine. I cannot seem to get Accesspoint to work with IIS however. Has anyone else had a similar issue and been able to resolve it?

      I received a set of steps from Qliktech support outlining some changes that need to be made to the config.xml file. Even though the server install was a 32 bit one the xml file in the specified folder after installation is called config_64.xml I have tried modifying this file as outlined. I have also taken a copy of this file and renamed it to config.xml and modified it as outlined by Qliktech. Neither of these methods will work for me.

      Kind Regards,

      Footsie

          Hi,

          Has anyone managed to get Qlikview 9 Server working with IIS and not the Qlikview Web Server which is the default? If so could you please outline what was required in order to get this to work.

          Kind Regards

              So I emailed Qlikview support and they sent me a checklist for all the steps needed in order for Qlikview to run in IIS. I have attached it to this post. The checklist was still based on Qlikview Server 8 and it still didnt work for me, but it did get me closer.

              According to the support email, once everything on the checklist is configured correctly, all you have to do is stop the Qlikview Web Server service and it should automatically work through IIS.

              Right now I believe it is running in IIS however I am having trouble getting it to authenticate me. I think my problem is somewhere in the Enable Anonymous Users and Use Window's Integrated Authentication configurations.

              Maybe you'll have more luck,

              Yes I have the same need. I'm am trying to test out different things with IIS and ADFS with Single Sign On and I may need to use asp pages, and the Qlikview Web Server does not support these. However, there's nothing in the documentation that describes how to use QVS 9 with IIS. It only says it is possible. I only have a draft version of the Qlikview 9 Server/Publisher Resource Manual and the exact wording in that is:

              "The QlikView Web Server is used by default in a Out-of-the-Box installation, thus
              removing the dependency on Microsoft Internet Information Server that previously
              existed. However, if you want to use IIS instead, this is still possible. Please see
              XXX."

              I'm assuming XXX was placemarker for the writers to add in later revisions.

              I tried following the documentation from Qlikview Server 8.5 but a lot of the configuration files and folders are not the same anymore.

              Any help would be greatly appreciated.

                Footsie,

                I'm curious to know what the changes to the config.xml file were. I found a file with that name in the QvsWebServer folder within C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Qliktech\QvWebServer. Maybe that was the file they were refering to instead of the config_64.xml thats in the C:\Program Files\QlikView\Server\QvWebServer folder?

                Thanks,

                Yiling

                    Hi ,

                    You can not get Accesspoint to work with IIS for Windows XP. The prerequisites for installing Web Server is QlikView http Server or
                    Microsoft IIS 6.0 or 7.0. As you can't have IIS 6.0 on windows XP you can not get Accesspoint to work with IIS for Windows XP.

                    For this you have to install Qlikview Server on Windows Server 2003 or higher , so that you can find IIS 6.0 or above.

                    Hope it will work for u.
