You must create an account that the vCenter Hyperic Server will use to connect to the vCenter Hyperic database.

1

Change the user to postgres and run # psql to connect to the database locally.

2

Run CREATE USER hqadmin WITH ENCRYPTED PASSWORD 'hqadmin' to create a user named hqadmin with login and createdb privileges.

The ENCRYPTED keyword is optional.

3

Run CREATE DATABASE "HQ" OWNER hqadmin ENCODING 'UTF8' to create a default database for vCenter Hyperic.

Placing quote marks around the HQ string makes the database name uppercase.

Install the vCenter Hyperic server. See Installing and Configuring the vCenter Hyperic Server.
