          Yes ,as long you are paying your yearly license maintainance fee you have the right to upgrade your QlikView server. You should upgrade to QV12 hence Qlik will no longer support 11.2 after  December 8th 2017.


          When is End Of Life for QlikView 11 and NPrinting 16? Read this

              Thank you Vegar Lie Arntsen , yes we pay the new support and we renew it and I update the licenses and now the migration step do you have any idea how to do migration from 11 to 12 ?

              I thing after take backup for all files and for QVS  it will be a normal installation after that reboot the server. then check al the services are working and all the document and users are able to access. am i right or not ? or there is something else.

                  Yes, you are right.

                  I would recommend you to look at Upgrade and Migration ‒ QlikView before doing the upgrade.

                   

                  I've run into one annoying issue during one of my previous upgrades from 11 to 12. I lost all my USER CAL allocation information during an upgrade of a QlikView test server. I would recommend you to keep a backup of user names with an USER CAL assigned. You could use a license monitoring app like Qlikview Server CAL Manager to extract your license information.

                   

                   

                  Cheers

                  PS: you should also check that your scripts are using applymap() that is reffering to an mapping table that does not exists. QV11.2 does not throw an error for it, but QV12 do.

                      Thank you very much. Actually I finish all migration successfully without any issue and also the client development application migration . and now i'm do it for NPrinting Server & Application .

                      but before I did it I remove all the named call and document call and restart the server after the migration all the services will be stopped you have to do restart (recommended) and all services will start.
