Vizlib Server Guides - Multi-Node Configuration (Enterprise) - VMC

Setting up a Qlik Sense multi-node environment to work with Vizlib Server requires configuration changes to both the Vizlib Management Console (VMC) and the Qlik Management Console (QMC).

This article contains instructions to configure virtual proxies in the VMC. Instructions for the next steps are:


Pre Configuration Checklist

Before starting the configuration, ensure you've gone through the items on this checklist. 

1. Vizlib Server Installed

Vizlib Server (Enterprise) must be installed on the target server.

2. Vizlib Management Console (VMC) credentials

Credentials required include the username and password for the Vizlib Management Console (VMC) of the Vizlib Server you want to use or a user account with Root Admin access. Read more about VMC user roles or view the VMC role matrix to view the permission options in a table.

3. Qlik Sense Node Certificates

Each node needs a separate Qlik Sense certificate (Figure 1). are required. Details of exported certificates are under the path on each node server.

C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Repository\Exported Certificates\.Local Certificates

Copy the node certificates for each node and store them on the Vizlib Server disk drive. We recommend creating a folder for each node with the node's name as the folder name.

4. Qlik Sense Node network information

Port numbers and host URLs for the QlikSense Proxy Service (QPS) and the QlikSense Repository Server (QRS) for each node.

Please note: your Node Host URL and the port number used by the QRS, QPS, QES, and QPS RestAPI Services is by default 4242, 443, 4747, and 4243.

VMC Configuration

Note on Adding QS Nodes: While each new node will have similar settings to the central node, there are some important differences. 

  • Save the URL paths of the certificates in a separate directory with a unique name. We recommend using the node name. The example below is for a node named Rim01
/Qlik/Sense/Repository/Exported Certificates/Rim01_Cert/client_key.pem 
  • The domain used for QPS and QRS settings should include the node name.
  • Log into the VMC, then navigate to System Settings > Qlik Sense to open the configuration screen. 
  • Enter the configuration for the central node (Figure 2). Select the Certificate Type, then add the paths for each certificate. Tip: Click the question mark icon to show instructions on exporting Qlik Sense certificates.

  • Add the information, and click Restart (upper right corner of the VMC screen). You must restart Vizlib Server after you add a Virtual Proxy to save the updated settings. 
  • Check that a green tick is showing in the Qlik Sense panel on the dashboard (Figure 3) to show the configuration is correct.

  • Repeat the process for each rim node in your environment. Start by Clicking on Add QS Node (Figure 4).

For each node you configure, a green check mark displays on the dashboard.

Next Steps - QMC Configuration

Next complete the configuration for a Multi-Node Qlik Sense Environment, by configuring virtual proxies using the Qlik Management Console (QMC).
