Are you moving or copying the files? Copying inherits permissions from the folder you are copying to. Moving may keep its original permissions. If that is happening to you because of a restore or something, that might be the issue.
Double check that NTFS is the only method allowed, and it's not set to DMS.
Hope that helps.
I was copying across from our other qlikview server.
On that one though, ANY user could log on and see all of the documents. I didn't need to specify permissions on folders or files in windows.
I'm having real trouble with my new installation though.
One user I gave permissions at the folder level (read permissions)
She went into IE, and could see the apps.
I then REMOVED her folder permissions by deleting her.
She went back into QV on IE and could STILL see the apps.
She then tried Chrome and could NOT see them - so I gave permissions back, refreshed Chrome and STILL cannot see them!!!
I don't know what i'm doing wrong here
our 'old' qlikview server was using the same security, so I cant understand why its different now..
the old one was v11, where the new one is 11.2 SR2 (not sure if there have been any security enhancements with the latest version)
I certainly don't want to have to restart the server every time.
Would DMS be a better security to use??
