Preparing vPostgres 9.2 as external Database for Horizon Workspace 1.5
August 20, 2013 Leave a comment
Today in my lab i tried to install the new version of Horizon Workspace from scratch to test if all previous steps about the external vPostgres database are still valid.
There are very few differences:
- Supported version for Horizon Workspace 1.5 is vPostgres 9.2 instead of 9.1
- Passwords for ‘root’ and ‘postgres’ users are not randomly generated anymore but you enter them during the OVA import process
- After completing the importing process timezone is set to UTC; you can easily change it from the console of the virtual machine
- When editing “postgresql.conf” you will find that the file is almost empty; all settings are in the “postgresql.conf.auto” file in the same directory which is not supposed to be changed. All the modifications that need to be applied simply need to be added as new lines in the “postgresql.conf” file.
Besides the above the procedure is identical and seems to work just fine.
