    Machine Name ID

    Emanuel bustos

      Anyone knows how to get the machine name ID of any client machine that we need to add a named user cal using Machine name identification? I only can assign via "Allow Dynamic CAL Assignment" because i don't know where the Machine Name ID String comes from. Any idea?

          I stops using the CAL by Machine name ID it is kinda problematical. But if someone knows the answer please post it to close the post.

            Up until QVS10, the Machine ID was composed of both the NetBIOS name of the client machine and the MAC Address (48-bit Ethernet address) of the network interface that was used to connect to the QlikView server, If my machine is called PC-PETER, and my MAC-address is 12:34:56:78:9A:BC (see ipconfig /all for MAC-addresses of all adapters in the client machine), then the Machine ID becomes:

             

                 PC-PETER [12-34-56-78-9A-BC]

             

            After QVS10, Machine ID was/is composed of a NetBIOS name and a specific ClassID (probably of a network adapter, don't know which one). And as Bill confirms, Machine IDs cannot be used anymore.
