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:
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.
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.
