The QlikView Management Console QVPR stores all task information and the system configuration that makes up the entire QlikView environment.
It is by default stored in an .xml database in C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\ManagementService
This may be changed to either a different file location, or to be stored in an SQL database.
If this was moved or changed, a new storage location will not be visible in the Management Console.Environment:
QlikView any version
SQL or Files?
To verify if you are using an .xml or SQL database, open the QlikView Management Console.
Navigate to System
> select Management Service
at the top of the list > Repository
Management Console is Offline. What now?
If the Management Service is offline, and the QVPR cannot be located, open a previously created log file.
The Management Service log files are located in C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\ManagementService\Log
Look for a service restart and the following lines:
Information DB Provider=Xml
Information DB BaseDir=
Information DB DataBaseName=QVPR
This will indicate SQL or XML, as well as show a value in BaseDir
if that has been changed.
If the storage location was changed, it was changed in the ManagementService.exe.config
file located in C:\Program Files\QlikView\Management Service
as documented in How to move the QlikView Publisher Repository (QVPR)
