    Windows 10 Workstation - localhost vs 'hostname'

    Jeremey Wise

      New to QlikSense but playing around with it. I saw post about Windows 2016 and so also Windows Workstation 10 not yet supported but see a pattern here where the implimentation completes, but it creates the icons to launch into the qmc or hub incorrectly.

       

      Example:

      Workstation name:  foo

       

      Powershell "hostname"  returns "foo"

       

      C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file  (vmware services junk... but nothing unusual)

      127.0.0.1vmware-localhost
      ::1      vmware-localhost

       

      resolution "localhost" or hostname

      S C:\Users\administrator> ping localhost

       

      Pinging foo [::1] with 32 bytes of data:

      Reply from ::1: time<1ms

      Reply from ::1: time<1ms

       

      Ping statistics for ::1:

          Packets: Sent = 2, Received = 2, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

      Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:

          Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms

      Control-C

      PS C:\Users\administrator> ping foo

       

      Pinging foo [fe80::1926:84c:5d55:f1a4%21] with 32 bytes of data:

      PS C:\Users\administrator>

       

      Basic 3.0.0.0 full installation using local windows 10 workstation admin user to start services

       

      Icons created:

      C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Qlik Sense\

      Target:

      https://foo/qmc

      https://foo/hub/

       

       

      vs correct target

      https://localhost/qmc/

      https://localhost/hub/my/work

       

      It just took me a min to rule out the normal firewall rule or service not starting etc.

       

      Figured others ran into this but did not see posting
