Configuring the node

Note: This section is only applicable to multi-node sites.

After you have installed Qlik Sense on the new node, you need to add the node in the QMC on the central node.

Do the following:

  1. Open the QMC on the central node.
  2. Select Nodes from the Start page to display the overview.

  3. Click P Create new in the action bar.

    The Node edit page is displayed.

  4. In the Identification section, type the Name of the node and enter the Host name (address) of the server that you are adding. You cannot change the host name after it has been saved. To change the host name, you must create a new node.

    Note: The server address must either be in the fully qualified domain name format: node2.domain.com or the machine name format: node2. We recommend that you use the fully qualified domain name (FQDN). If you only use the machine name as the host name, the FQDN must be added manually to the virtual proxy Host white list.
  5. In the Node purpose section, use the drop down list to select which environment the node is intended for: Production, Development, or Both.
  6. In the Services activation section, select all the services you installed on the node that you are adding.

    The repository service is always included. If a service is not installed when trying to activate, the properties will be applied when the installation is complete.

    Note: You can display or hide property groups using the panel to the far right. When you edit a property, an arrow (B) is displayed next to the property name, to indicate that the property value will be changed. Clicking B resets that specific property value.
  7. Click Apply to create and save the node.

    The node adding process starts. The secure certificates from the central node are packaged and password protected and then shipped to the new node.

    Once completed, Successfully added is displayed at the bottom of the page and a dialog with your authorization password appears.

    Note: If you typed the Host name incorrectly the error message Node registration failed appears. Because the host name cannot be changed after it has been saved, you must create a new node with the correct host name.
    Note: Clicking Apply is not possible if a mandatory field is empty. A dialog for unsaved changes is displayed if you leave the edited page without clicking Apply. Clicking Cancel allows you to continue editing. If the communication with the QRS fails, an error message is displayed and then you can continue editing or click Apply again.
  8. Take note of the URL and the authorization password.
