    Automated licence assignment on initial start

      Hi there,

       

      we are currently installing the QV-client on several machines in our company. By starting the first time the user has to connect to the server to have a.) the server-connection established and b.) to get a Named CAL via licence lease from the server.

       

      Is there any way to automate this procedure? Supposedly the majority of users does not want to pass the whole procedure every time they work on another machine.

       

       

      Thanks and BR,

       

      Max

          Hi Max,

           

          The licenses work for session and user, meaning that if User A is using Computer 1, it should log in as User A, and if he moves to Computer 2, he will also need to log in as User A, and the session in Computer 1 will be closed by this second one.

           

          If the credentials are the same the users have when logging on to Windows, and the Server is set to NTFS and there is an AD set up, then the Desktop should take these and assign the license accordingly, as long as the computer is online the first time QlikView Desktop is open.

           

          Hope that helps.
