VMware Horizon JMP – Prepare

Release date: June 6th 2019

Welcome to my VMware Horizon JMP series. This topic will cover the different aspects of preparations for VMware Horizon JMP installation.

  • Deploy server
    • Deploy virtual machine with required virtual hardware
    • Set ip, join Domain, locate computer account in correct OU
    • Verify Windows Time settings
  • Download Installation media
  • Create necessary domain user and assign permissions
  • Database
    • Create database
    • Create and assign logins and permissions

 

Deploy server

As pr. planning and verification vs. requirements, I can now deploy a new VM for the JMP Server.

JMP_Prepare-02

JMP_Prepare-03

JMP_Prepare-04

 

As this is a Lab set up, I will limit memory to 4 GB, not 8 GB as was a prerequisite

JMP_Prepare-05

JMP_Prepare-06

 

Once the VM is deployed, I set an IP address and join it to my domain. I also move the computer-account to the correct OU in ADUC and verify that both my connection servers and the new JMP server is synchronized with the domain-provided Time-server settings.

Download installation media

From My Vmware I download the installer to the new JMP server.

Create necessary domain user and assign permissions

I create a user in AD, JmpAdmin, and add this user to Administrators-group locally on the new server named view-jmp01.ad.admin.frelab.net

JMP_Prepare-09

 

Create database and SQL Logins

I log into my SQL Server, open SQL Management Studio and create a new database for Horizon JMP. (This setup was initially done on a single stand-alone SQL server, DB-01. I have moved this database to a SQL Always On Cluster since this initial set up.)

I name my new database JMPDB

Next, I’ll create SQL Logins

This user has to have the sysadmin server role

JMP_Prepare-15

 

I give this user db_owner permissions on the JMPDB database

Next, I will create a SQL Login for my domain user

JMP_Prepare-17

 

I click Search to find my domain user

JMP_Prepare-18

 

I change location to Entire Directory and locate my user

JMP_Prepare-19

JMP_Prepare-20

 

I assign this user db_owner permissions on my JMPDB database
