Phần 1 – Cài Horizon View Server 5.2
VMware Horizon View 5.2 Install
1. Provision a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 VM, and do your normal configuration such as joining it to your domain. Resist the strong urge to use a Windows Server 2012 VM, as that is not supported. Note to View team: Please get with the program. vCenter 5.0 U2 supports WS2012, why can’t you?
2. Download the Horizon Suite 1.0 components from the VMware site. Copy the Connection Server installer to your newly provisioned VM and start the install process.
3. Once you get to the Destination Folder, you can leave the default value or put it elsewhere like on the D drive. For this example I’ll keep it simple and leave it on the C drive.
4. Next up you need to decide what role this particular server will be used for. For this series we will start off with the View Standard server.
5. The wizard will now prompt you for a data recovery password. Should your View server become inoperable or face other technical issues, you may need the recovery password to well….recover your environment. So make sure you write this down and keep it in a safe place. The password can be from 1 to 128 characters.
6. If in your environment you use the Windows firewall, View can automatically configure the appropriate rules. Since I’m using the Windows firewall, I want View to configure the rules for me. Note that if you want to use the Security server, it requires the use of Windows firewall to establish an IPsec connection to the Connection server. So I would advise using the Windows firewall.
7. Now you need to tell View what administrator group will have access into the View console. I would strongly urge the use of a domain security group vice the local administrator group. Following my favorite RBAC naming convention I’m using APP_View_All_Administrator. You should create your own group.
8. Next up it will ask you if you want to send anonymous data to VMware. I most certainly do NOT, but the choice is yours.
9. Click Install and wait for the installer to complete.
10. Unfortunately the View console relies on the very insecure Adobe Flash player. So download it to the computer(s) that you want to access the View console from.
In Part 2 we will configure the SSL certificate for the View connection server. In this area the View team is light-years ahead of the vCenter team. Installing a trusted SSL certificate is cake, and shockingly uses the Windows OS certificate store (yeah!).
