    Suppress AD account that run services

      Hello everyone,


      We are going to do some operations on our server to enable us to be more than 2 to access the server in remote access. Currently, all the account are local accounts and all of them are going to be deleted.


      What will be the consequences for Qlikview ? IfI re-create a local account which has the same name as the previous one (the one that run the QV services), will it work ?


      Thank you for your help

          may be this way,



          For Server 2012,

          1. Open command propmt

          2.write gpedit.msc and open it

          3.Go to computer configuration -> Administrative Tempalates -> Wondows Components

          ->Remote Desktop services -> Remote Desktop Session Host -> Connections.

          4. Here Disble the below mentioned.


          Restrict Remote Desktop Services user to a single remote.....


          NOw goto command propmt and update the group ploicy using below mentioned command.


          Goto command propmt and type -> gpupdate and enter it. it should be successfully applied.

          I think this will not effect your users.

              Thank you for your reply.

              But my administrator is going to do what he plans to do (I don't understand veyr well administrations things...).

              My point is that the local AD account that runs the QV services will be deleted and I want to know the impacts and how can I go over it.

              Thank you for your help !

                  The QlikView Windows Services will need changing to a new AD User that belongs to the same Local Groups as your current Local User, and the Services restarting


                  Your administrator should be able to create the new AD User and do this for you.


                  I'd suggest keeping the current Local User until you have tested all is ok before it being deleted.
