Qlik Replicate UI server configurations

You can either install Qlik Replicate on a single machine or on two separate machines. The possible configurations for installing Qlik Replicate on two separate machines are described below.

Information note

When the Qlik Replicate .NET UI Server is running on one machine and the Qlik Replicate Server is running on another, the Qlik Replicate Server password must be the same on both machines. The password is used during the SSL handshake to establish a secure connection between the participating machines.

For information on setting the password, see Changing the server password.

Configuration 1: Replicate Server running on Windows

In this configuration, the Replicate Console component and the Replicate Server components are running on two separate Windows machines.

Configuration 2: Replicate server running on Linux

In this configuration, the Replicate Console component and the Replicate Server components are running on two separate machines - the former on Windows and the latter on Linux.

Configuration 3: Replicate UI Console and Replicate server running on Linux

In this configuration, the UI Console and the Web server (Qlik Replicate Server) are hosted on two separate Linux machines, though it is also possible to install them on a single machine.

Note that in such a configuration, the ability to assign different roles (as described in User permissions) is not supported. In other words, all users will have the admin role.

PAM prerequisites

To establish a secure connection using PAM, make sure that the following prerequisites have been met:

  • The Attunity user or group (or the user/group set during the installation) must be granted permission to read the file: etc/shadow. Note that this prerequisite is only required when Qlik Replicate is installed on two machines.
  • Edit the repctl.cfg file and modify the path to the fully qualified name of the libpam.so.0 library if required.

    Example:  

    "login_pam_libpam_full_path":"/lib64/libpam.so.0",

    "login_pam_service_name": "system-auth"

    }
