Looking at the qlikview event-log it turned out, that qlikview for some reason had dobbled the path for the qvw-file in our NAS. That is: the qvw-file (the user document) was placed in:
\\nas1\gruppe\QlikView Storage prod\PUBLIC\QlikViewServer
but the event-log pointed at
\\nas1\gruppe\QlikView Storage prod\PUBLIC\QlikViewServer\nas1\gruppe\QlikView Storage prod\PUBLIC\QlikViewServer
After creating this path - and putting the a qvw in the folder with the relevant name, it was possible to delete a DocCal that was attached to the file. Deleting the qvw file again and the false dobble-path - this made the User Document disappear.
I have the same problem, but I can't create this path. According to the event log it points to
and it's not possible to create a folder named "E:" ...
Where the QV-Server stores this information? Can I changed the path there?
I just happened to a very similar issue.
I was working through the Server Publisher Training Exercises, which involves setting up server ant then onto a publisher set up.
I found that I too had a QVW file showing in USERDOCS folder in QMC where the file did not exist. It showed in UPPERCASE.
I restored back to a point where I was just running SERVER and not publisher and found the same issue there.
Since QVW not is User Docs folder ..
I put it back in USERDOCS, since at SERVER point, it would not reference any SOURCE folder
Disabled the 2 tasks that exist at this point
and then in QMC User Document – removed the RELOAD schedules
So now – no tasks show
Checked Document Cals and 5 were assigned
Removed User assigned to document in QMC User Document
Removed Cals assigned to document in QMC User Document
Deleted QVW from UserDocs
AND BINGO, no more Non Existent File showing in QMC User Document
I've just had the same problem here, with ghost documents trying to be found by the server in the folder:
What I have done:
Changing the Root Folder for the QVS in the System/Setup Tab to a brand new one.
Restarting the QVS Service (It is automatic, though)
No more ghost qvw in the User Document tab.
Edit: Be careful however: your CALs will be reset, so spare you some time to replace them for each document.
I've juste have to step back because all my users could not connect to their doc (due to my CAL being not assigned anymore)
