How to recreate the QlikView Distribution Service folder

The path to the QlikView Distribution Service (QDS) application data folder can be found in the QlikView Management Console (QMC) under System --> Setup --> pick the QDS on the left --> General --> Application Data Folder    (default value: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\DistributionService)

It includes log files and result .xml file used by the Distribution Service and Management Service to keep track of task results. This data can be archived. Note that this location does not include task setups! These are stored in the QVPR.

At times, the Distribution Service folder includes too much data, causing a delay in the communication between services. 


QlikView any version


To reset the Distribution Service folder, follow these steps:

  • Stop the QlikView Distribution Service
  • Stop the QlikView Management Service
  • Navigate to the Distribution Service folder and rename it, or otherwise move it to another location
  • Start the QlikView Management Service
  • Start the Distribution Service

This will recreate the folder. As mentioned, the task setup is saved in the QVPR, so the schedule will not be affected.
