ShowReloadEngines setting in Management Service exe.config explained
Article Number: 000016236 | Last Modified: 2019/06/13
There is a new setting in the QVManagementService.exe.config file located in C:\Program Files\QlikView\Management Service by default that allows for the clean-up of 'rogue' Reload Engine resources that get created when adding a new QlikView Server resource to an existing Management Service environment.
The way to confirm the issue is first to ensure you have a licensed Publisher in the environment, if so, and you have added another QlikView Server resource to the environment, check the Performance tab settings of the new QlikView Server resource to see if the Reload Limits settings are showing. If they are, then follow the steps below in the Resolution to clear the Reload Engine if everything is to be handled by the licensed Publisher in the environment.
The underlying issue is related to TFS case number 68947.
Edit the QVManagementService.exe.config file located in C:\Program Files\QlikView\Management Service by default, and look for the following entry:
<!-- Possibility to make Reload Engines visible under Setup/System Distribution services -->
<add key="ShowReloadEngines" value="false"/>
Change the "false" in the ShowReloadEngines add key line to "true" and then save the file and restart the Management Service to get the change picked up by the service. The Reload Engine will now be visible in the Management Console\System\Setup\Distribution Service resources area and may be removed there to get rid of it.
