You create additional vCenter Hyperic server nodes in a similar way to the first server installation, but change some parameters during the installation process.

Perform this procedure for each additional node.

1

Run the full vCenter Hyperic installer and select the external PostgreSQL database option.

2

When the installer prompts for the location of the vCenter Hyperic database, specify the location of the database that was created for the first server instance.

3

When the installer asks if you want to upgrade, overwrite, or exit the process, select upgrade.

4

When the installer prompts you to supply the database password and the encryption key to use to encrypt the database password, enter the same password and encryption key supplied when you installed the first server instance.
