This is a complex operation and not recommended for beginners or those unfamiliar with Windows or QlikView Server/Publisher.
To enable logging of the calls between QVB.exe and QlikView Distribution Service, add an entry to the settings.ini file for QlikViewBatch.
There are 2 places that the settings.ini file can reside (note the paths shown are for Windows Server 2008 / Windows 7):
- If you are running normal, scheduled tasks within the QMC or QEMC, the settings.ini file will be located in:
- If you are using command line execution of the QlikView Distribution service, the settings.ini file will be located in the USER folders of the account running the QlikView Distribution service:
- Under the section [Settings 7] in settings.ini add
Each time a task or batch reload is run, the QVB.exe will create a log file similar to the one attached including all the calls between the QDS and the QVB.exe.
The log files will be located in C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewBatch
NOTE: this folder may not exist, if it doesn't you must create it, otherwise the logging will not work
