    Move/ Migrate publisher jobs from one server to another?

      We are using QV9.0 and have multiple servers. Is it possible to move publisher jobs from one server to another in QV 9.0? Please let me know what folders do I have to move and steps taken while moving. Does it have to do anything with QVPR?

          I got the answer from forums

          Yes, this can be somewhat daunting, but a lot less so once you understand what needs to be modified. If you folder structure is the same on both servers, it's really not all that bad. 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.

          It's possible that I've missed a couple files, but that should do it I think. Test it out.
