Welcome to my VMware Horizon series. In this session I will describe how I setup my database for the VMware Horizon Composer server. I have, after I created this session, moved my SQL database to a SQL AlwaysOn Cluster, covered here: VMware Horizon – Move Composer DB to AlwaysOn Sql Cluster
For this database I will be using my existing MS SQL Database server.
Right-click Databases – New Database
Give the database a name, as this will be the composer-database for the Composer-server, I’ll call it ViewComposer
Next we will setup sql-permissions for the ViewComposer-database, right-click Logins – New Login…
I will create a new sql-user: viewcomposeradmin, be sure to uncheck “Enforce password policy”
The Server Role “Public” will be sufficient for my ViewComposerAdmin-user
I map my user to my newly created ViewComposer-database and give the user db_owner membership for this database.
Be sure to grant permission to connect and login to database is selected.
