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
- Create database
- Create and assign logins and permissions
As pr. planning and verification vs. requirements, I can now deploy a new VM for the JMP Server.
As this is a Lab set up, I will limit memory to 4 GB, not 8 GB as was a prerequisite
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
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
I make sure to deselect ” Enforce password policy”
This user has to have the sysadmin server role
I give this user db_owner permissions on the JMPDB database
Next, I will create a SQL Login for my domain user
I click Search to find my domain user
I change location to Entire Directory and locate my user
I assign this user db_owner permissions on my JMPDB database
Now, that my preparations are complete, I can move on with the actual installation job, posted here: VMware Horizon JMP – Installation
