VMware vCloud Director Database Setup
In this first part of a series of VMware vCloud Director tutorials, we look at creating the vCloud Director database on our Microsoft SQL Server.
Before you start you will want to check on the VMware compatibility list to see what version of Microsoft SQL Server are compatible with the version of vCloud Director you are using.
You can check the VMware Product Interoperability Matrix by clicking here, select the Solution/Database Interoperability tab. In the first drop down box select VMware vCloud Director followed by your version on the right. In the second drop down box select the version of Database you wish to use. This will then produce a table letting you know what platform is supported and what is not.
Creating a vCloud Director Database
1. Open Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio. Within object explorer on the left hand side, right click on Databases and select New Database. I’m going to set my database name as vcloud6 and ensure that my Initial Size (MB) column is 100 for the database and 1 for the log
All the tutorials included on this site are performed in a lab environment to simulate a real world production scenario. As everything is done to provide the most accurate steps to date, we take no responsibility if you implement any of these steps in a production environment.
