Small notes about the guide when installing with AWS/GCP

1.Make sure the hostname is correct

On step 10 you are required to place your hostname.

Qlik does not recognize the hostname properly

Make sure you place the local machine hostname

To do so, go to cmd write “hostname” and the result past to the installation


 2. the installation should be on Administrator user
On step 15 you need the full path to the user you want the services will run on.
Copy the hostname add “/” and add the username you just created.
Should look like that host_name/new_user

 Beside that, the installation is mostly clicking next
