    Will tasks still working after activating publisher?

    Sandra Morgenstern

      Hello,

       

      I have installed a new server with QlikView 12 and Testserver-Licence without using Publisher. This new server should be the active server in future and so I transferred all documents and added all Tasks from the current active server. Current server uses Publisher and the new server should do this in future. Is there some negative effect after transferring Publisher licence from current to new Server to use Publisher? Will the tasks still work as created?

       

      Regards,

      Sandra

          Hi,

           

          If your tasks do not migrate correctly you will need to use one of the Power Tools.

           

          1. On the machine, run the Reload Schedule Migration Tool.

           

          2. In the tool, use the button under Step 1 to browse to and select the QVPR folder for your

          QlikView Server installation. It is located under:

          a. Windows Server 2003/XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application

          Data\QlikTech\ManagementService\QVPR

          b. Windows Server 2008/Vista/7: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\

          ManagementService\QVPR

           

          3. Check the checkbox at Step 1.

           

          4. In Step 2, change or add Source Document Folders to reflect the new system. Check the

          checkbox at Step 2.

           

          5. In Step 3a, return to the Enterprise Management Console (Management Console in

          11) and navigate to System > Licenses > QlikView Publisher, and enter your licensing

          information for Publisher. Press Apply License. Return to the tool and check the checkbox

          at Step 3a.

           

          6. In Step 3b, open the Windows Services management console, stop the QlikView

          Management Service. Return to the tool and check the checkbox at Step 3b.

           

          7. In Step 3c, return to the machine and manually copy the affected documents from the

          User Documents folders to the Source Documents folders according to the mapping from

          Step 2. Check the checkbox at Step 3c.

           

          8. The tool is now ready to migrate the tasks. Check the checkbox at Step 4 and press

          Recreate Tasks Now. You will get a message saying that the tasks were

          migrated successfully.

           

          9. In Step 5, open the Windows Services management console, start the QlikView

          Management Service. Return to the tool and check the checkbox at Step 5.

           

          10. Verify by returning to the QlikView Enterprise Management Console; Documents >

          Source Documents and find your reload tasks on the moved documents.

           

          See PowerTools 1.1 for QlikView on Community

          Pravesh

              Hi,

               

              thanks for the hint to PowerTools. But the Tasks are already active on new Server, but without Publisher. What I want to know is, if I will activate Publisher, all Tasks still running or will be there some negative effect? I cannot test without because I wont disturb the users.

               

              Regards, Sandra

                  If you folder structure is the same on both servers, there should be no issues. 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 the trick. Test it out.

                  What is Reload Schedule Migration Tool?

                  We have been using QlikView for 2 years without Publisher

                  we just installed the license key for Publisher

                  We had to re-key all the load schedules

                  When you apply the key - you schedules all magically disappear.

                  You will need to go into the settings and point publisher to the correct directory where all your QVW's are

                  once that is in place you will see your Documents in the documents folder and it's easy to put the schedules in.

                   

                  make sure you document your old loading schedule before you install the Key!

                  Once you start using it, you'll wonder why Qlik requires you to buy it.  It's part of the QV Console with the things you wish were in there.  There is very little instruction found on the web anywhere on this.

                    The tasks will work as long as you are using publisher.  Tasks are different for server and publisher.
