Installing View Composer

The Horizon View Composer can be installed a vCenter Server or as a standalone service. If you are using vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA), then you will have to install the standalone version, as the VCSA is SUSE-based and View Composer is a Windows service. By being standalone, it also makes for better scalability.

Before you start the installation, you need to ensure that you have .NET 3.5 SP1 installed on your server and also the SSL certificate, as we will need this during the installation process. You will also need to set up a SQL database.

On the server that you are going to use as the View Composer server, locate the installation software you downloaded previously into the shared network folder, and launch the VMware-viewcomposer-6.0.0-184350 installation file. This is the same file we used to install the first connection server.

Again, note that the number at the end of the filename is the build number, and it can be different depending on the build or version...
