To use an existing View Composer database, you must migrate the RSA key container between machines. You migrate the RSA key container by using the ASP.NET IIS registration tool provided with the Microsoft .NET Framework.

Before you begin

Download the .NET Framework and read about the ASP.NET IIS registration tool. Go to http://www.microsoft.com/net.

Procedure

  1. Install the .NET Framework on the physical or virtual machine on which the VMware Horizon View Composer service associated with the existing database is installed.
  2. Install the .NET Framework on the destination machine on which you want to want to install the new VMware Horizon View Composer service.

What to do next

Migrate the RSA key container to the destination machine. See Migrate the RSA Key Container to the New View Composer Service.
