    Help - QlikView Server (Licence)

    amunhoz

       

      Hello,

      I have QlikView Server installed on a server. I am changing machine and need to take this licence of QlikView Server to the other machine.
      Someone could say what the best way? Is there a Trial license where I could perform tests and analyze whether this new server is running?
      How do I remove the license on this machine and transfer to my new server?

      Thank you very much!

          There is a test license available--you should contact your Qliktech Account Manager to get details. To remove a license from a server, you would need to stop all services, and then delete all LEF files (including in hidden folders) and the HKLM\SOFTWARE\QlikTech\QlikViewServer\Authentication registry key. To install your existing license on the new server, just enter the license key information in QMC.

          Regards,

              Hello,

              I could not find this file that I have to delete. It works if I just stop the service and the License button in Control Panel and delete the license information?

              Thank you for contact!

                  No, that won't work--you actually need to delete the LEFs or the license would just be recreated immediately. The files should be here (paths assume a Windows 2008 server):

                  C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\Publisher LEF\PubLef.txt
                  C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikView\Lef.txt
                  C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Lef.txt
                  C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\QlikTech\QlikView\Lef.txt

                  I think that's all of them. So stop the services, delete the files and the reg key, and restart the services.

                  Regards,
