    Qv Server/Publisher 9 SR5 second server access issue

    simonpaul

      Hello there,

      im currently trying to install a testsystem of the actual service release 5 of qlikview server/publisher

      but i run into a problem accessing the external server from publisher. our installation looks like that

       

      Internal Qlikview Server:

      User A as QvAdmingroup (internal LDAP)

      Qlikview Server+Accesspoint

      Qlikview Publisher

       

      External Qlikview Server:

      User B as QvAdmingroup (external LDAP)

      Qlikview Server+Accesspoint

       

      On the extenal server i have checked Allow admin using name and password on the security tab

      and added it to the internal servers qemc with the user credential from ExternalLdap\B wich works just fine i can access the options of the external server from internal qemc and change them.

       

      BUT if i try to Distribute something from internal publisher to external server i can neither choose a mount (the dropdownfield is empty) nor can i publish anything to the external server the job fails withthe following error in the task log

          An interesting scenario ... so you basically want to distribute to a foreign/unrelated QvS.

          It sounds like you're using a Server Distribution task. QvS will only accept Document Upload requests if (1) Document Upload is enabled on the target QvS, and (2) the Publisher process is running as an account that the QvS recognises is a member of QlikView Administrators. I don't see this working in your multi-domain environment.

          Alternatively you can try a Folder Distribution task, but I expect this to fail because you're unlikely to enable SMB traffic through your firewall, and the Windows Security on the QvS host probably won't recognise the QDS account for access to a \\hostname\share\folder\

          That leaves you with an External Task to do the Distribution.:Create a batch file that FTPs the QVW from the Publisher host to the Mounted Folder location on the QvS host. Schedule this as an External Task in QEMC, triggered by the successful completion of the Reload task.

              On our previous installs we had a User named QlikviewPublisher with the same password on both sides wich was a workaround but i thought this problem was fixed by qlikview in one of the new service releases?

              And why is there even an option for including another Server with Username and password if it cant handle distribution from publisher?

              And yes Document Upload is enabled on the external Server
