    Wrong Configuration in QMC/ DistributionService

    Fabian Lepie

      Hi,

      we have a great Problem with one QlikView Document. The Size of this Document is 20 GB. And we want to open it only on one cluster QVS. But when we configure in QMC - Tasks - ReloadAndDistributionTask-Server-Performance-ClusterNode for one "Never" and for the other "Always" and "Preload" the QVW opens on both Clusterd Servers.

      What we know now is, that in the Task_d3....xml the Hosts will be configured in Tag "DocumentLoad" as ClusterID. But there is the Host configured, not the real Cluster adress. At this Point the configuration is not correct because the QMC add the wrong "Cold" Server-2 as "Prohibit" and the correct "Hot" Server-3 as "Preload". But the "Hot" Server-1 and the other "Cold" Server-4 are not configured.

      The old Task_XML was:

         <DocumentLoad MaxOpenSessions="-1" SessionTimeout="0" DocumentTimeout="840" EnableSessionCollaboration="False">

            <Qvs Name="QVS@MyQVSName.com" Mode="Granular">

        <Node ClusterID="ServerHostName-2" Mode="Prohibit"/>

        <Node ClusterID="ServerHostName-3" Mode="Preload" />

            </Qvs>

          </DocumentLoad>

       

      We add both Server to the XML and now it works:

         <DocumentLoad MaxOpenSessions="-1" SessionTimeout="0" DocumentTimeout="840" EnableSessionCollaboration="False">

            <Qvs Name="QVS@MyQVSName.com" Mode="Granular">

        <Node ClusterID="ServerHostName-1" Mode="Prohibit"/>

        <Node ClusterID="ServerHostName-2" Mode="Prohibit"/>

        <Node ClusterID="ServerHostName-3" Mode="Preload" />

        <Node ClusterID="ServerHostName-4" Mode="Prohibit"/>

            </Qvs>

          </DocumentLoad>

       

      The big QVW only opens on the Preload Server.

       

      But when we edit this task in QMC or change something in the QMC-System-QVServer configuration we loose this changes.

       

      Now our questions are:

      How can we solve our problem, that the big QVW only opens on one Cluster OR on one Host (its equal for us if on one Host or one Cluster)?

      Are we on the "right way" with our solution to manually edits the task?

      How can we change the Task and Server Config without loose our manually changes?

      Is there any way to add/change the Host Names in the QMC? (Perhaps this is easier than edit manually the Tasks)

       

      For better understanding here our QlikView Setup:

      Cluster A (Windows Failover Cluster) 

           ServerHostName-1 (Hot; DistributionService, QVServer, DirectoryService)

           ServerHostName-2 (Cold; DistributionService, QVServer, DirectoryService)

      Cluster B (Windows Failover Cluster)

           ServerHostName-3  (Hot; QVServer, DirectoryService)

           ServerHostName-4 (Cold; QVServer, DirectoryService)

      Server 5 (QMC)

      Server 6,7,8,9: Accesspoints

       

      We had also an QlikView Cluster Licence for the two Hot QlikView Server.

      Actually QV Version is 11.20.

       

      Can anyone help us?

       

      Many thanks!
