When installing QlikView Server, you may experience the following when attempting to set the service account:
- Using Browse... button will only list local server name, not the domain
- Manually providing correct username and password will render a warning:
Server not found. Verify that the specific server exists. The server name can not be empty.
The primary function of the Computer Browser Service is to provide a list of computers sharing resources in a client's domain along with a list of other domain and workgroup names across the wide-area network (WAN).
On each network segment, a master browser is elected from the group of computers located on the segment that are running the browser service.
In a Windows domain structure, the Domain Controller is always selected as the domain master browser. If the Computer Browser Service is not present on the Domain Controller, a domain master browser is not available and you are unable to obtain a list of domains on the network.
Select "I want to specify the account to be used for the services later."
