NPrinting engine remains offline & status does not change to online. I checked the logs & below error appears in scheduler logs:
Exception caught Qlik.NPrinting.Repo.ServiceException: Lef File Server Unreachable
I have activated the license offline & it says activation successful.
Has anyone encountered this error before?
MMC is for Microsoft Management Console. Refer to official Microsoft documentation about how to use it.
I repeated your solution more than 20 times, I am absolutely sure that there is a bug on Nov 2018 version.
I tried on win 2012, 2016 and on a fresh installation , it doesnt work at all.
I also tried to install Sep2018 on a fresh installation, then restore my data, then upgrade to Nov2018, still same issue.
The only result differences between what I got and you posted is
I don't see this line in my log file " Engine Consumer started successfully.
it is as
Starting up Engine service
Certificates exchange HTTP server listening on http://localhost:4997/
Starting RabbitMQ connection using certificate E10B06DE1D0446B0522236162CB619C475244CA6
Slave Engine Service started successfully
Also, in the Sep2018 version I noticed certificate friendly name is as nprinting server, but when I install freshh NOv 2018 version or remove the engine and define, I dont see any friendly name in the certificate (in case if friendly name is a matter)
Hope you can help
