A cluster of Directory Service Connectors does not require any specific settings. No special licensing is required. No shared storage is required.
Follow the below steps to correctly configure a Directory Service Connector cluster:
- Open the QlikView Management Console (QMC) and navigate to System > Setup > Directory Service Connector (DSC)
- Click on the DSC@<servername>, then click General tab - (optional: under Cluster heading, change the name to DSC@Cluster)
- Under the URL heading, click the Add icon (green plus) to add a new URL line
- The URL of the current DSC will be auto-populated, so change the servername to that of the secondary server
- Click Apply
A common misconception is that DSC clustering is configured at the System > Setup > Directory Service Connector level (the DSC folder level). This is inaccurate as adding additional DSC services at this level will result in un-grouped DSCs and will likely cause Client Access Licenses (CALs) assignments to show as duplicated in QMC > System > Licenses > QlikView Server > Client Access Licenses (CALs) tab > Assigned CALs tab.
