    Server and Publisher on different machines

    Mayank Chhajed

      Hi,

      I need to install Qlikview Publisher 11 on Machine1 and Qlikview Server 11 on Machine2. To achive this:

      1. Should Distribution Service and QlikView Server be on different machines?

      2. Do I need any separate licence?

      3. Do I need to install Directory Service Connector on both the machines and if not, will there be authentication problem?

          Hi

          Install

           

          Server1

          - QlikView Server

          - QlikView WebServer

           

          Server2

          - QlikView Distribution Service

          - QlikView Directory Service

          - QlikView Management Service

           

          Access in the management console system tab. Then you need to set where each service.

          In QlikView Server Add or change the URL qvp://Server2/ to qvp://Server1/

          In Qlikview Web Servers Add or change the URL http://Server2:4750/QVWS/Service to http://Server1:4750/QVWS/Service

           

          Best Regards.

                  Don't worry, be Qlik.

                      Hi Tonial,

                       

                      As per your recommendation i have selected scenario 1.

                      Can this be done without the load balancing router?

                       

                      Then i run into the following issue. I have 2 Web Server Services. If i shutdown 1 of the QlikView Server Service, the Web Server Service does not know where to go. I get the message page can not be displayed. If i physically change the address to the other QlikView Server it recognizes the access point. How do i configure the fall back Web Server Service? How do i point to one and only URL so there is no confusion?

                       

                      Regards,

                      Arish

                  Hi fernando.tonial,

                  One of client had ask to setup a qlikview server with IIS as a web server, but he had asked to install only web server (IIS) on different server machine.

                   

                  Can we install web server(IIS) instead of qlikview web server and qlikview server with other components on different machines(server)?

                  If yes, can you please let me know how should i proceed

                   

                  Also, it would be helpful if you can provide guidance on the above setup will be useful or not?

                   

                  Thanks,

                  Punit
