    Qlikview server backup before formatting

      Hi,

       

      I want to install a new windows server version on the qlikview server machine.

      I know that i need to reinstall the qlikview server but dont want to redefine all the qlikview server setting from the beginning,

      so what can i do to preserve these server setting (like security,reload plans,documents settings Etc)

       

      Thanks in advance,

              Matan, what version are you using?

               

              If you're using QlikView 10 or 11 you need to backup the folder c:\programdata\qliktech.

               

              That's where all settings are.

               

              A few other things to take into consideration

              - QlikView server root folder files hold license assignment information. Check the value at QEMC>System>Server>Folders

              - Also backup all QVW applications and QVD files

              - If you have any ODBC connections created you might want to document those before formatting.

              - You can use the powertools to backup DMS authorization settings and CAL assigment just in case something doesn't copy correctly.

              - If you're using NTFS as your authorization mechanism remember to use a tool that will also backup file permissions like Robocopy.

               

               

              I think that covers most situations.
