If you did not configure the vCenter Hyperic server properties before running the RPM server installer, you are prompted to do so after installation. You cannot use the server until the properties have been specified.

You can find a sample of the vfabric_hyperic_server.properties file in vCenter Hyperic Server Properties for RPM Installation. You can copy this file and edit it to complete this procedure.

Do not change installation directory property. The value of HQ_SERVER_INSTALL_PATH must remain /opt/vmware/hyperic.


Create a file named vcenter_hyperic_server.properties.


Configure other settings in the file as required.

You can edit the properties file to configure Hyperic Server to use an external PostgreSQL database. If you do not change the value, the vCenter Hyperic server will use the built in local PostgreSQL database.


Save your changes, and copy vfabric_hyperic_server.properties to the /etc/vmware/vcenter/hyperic/ directory.


Log in as root and in /opt/hyperic/hyperic-hqee-installer, run the setup_from_properties_file.sh script.

Start the vCenter Hyperic server.
