The method that you use to start the vCenter Hyperic server depends on how it was installed and how it will run.

You run a script to start the server.

If you installed the vCenter Hyperic server from the VMware yum repository to a RHEL virtual machine, the vCenter Hyperic server is configured to start automatically each time the virtual machine starts up.

The first time that you start the server following installation, use this command to start it as a Windows service.
