You can install vCenter Hyperic server from a RedHat Package Manager package.

By default, the installer configures the vCenter Hyperic server using a default properties file. You can create a customized properties file if you prefer. See Configure the vCenter Hyperic Server Properties File Before RPM Server Installation.

Before you run the installer, verify that the following prerequisites have been satisfied.

The database has been configured. See Set up the vCenter Hyperic Database.

SSL has been configured. See Configuring SSL Options.

Verify that your SMTP server is listening on port 25 on the vCenter Hyperic server host.


On the platform on which the vCenter Hyperic server is being installed, run yum install vfabric-hyperic-server.

yum resolves dependencies and displays the packages to install.


(Optional) If this is the first time that you have installed a vCenter Hyperic component on the virtual machine, accept the end user license agreement when prompted.


Type y at the prompt to start the installation.


If you are prompted to do so, configure the vCenter Hyperic server properties. See Configure the vCenter Hyperic Server Properties File After Installation.


After successfully installing vCenter Hyperic server, delete InstallerHome/logs/hq-install.log and hq-install.log.verbose, or the whole the exploded installer. This is necessary to delete sensitive data that is written to the installation log files.
