Use this procedure when you are deploying vRealize Hyperic vApp in a medium or large scale environment.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that you are connected to the vRealize Hyperic server virtual machine using SSH and that the server is stopped.

  • Power off the database virtual machine.

Procedure

  1. On the Hardware tab of the database Virtual Machine Properties dialog box, edit the Provisioned Size setting to increase the hard disk size, and click OK.
    • Increase the disk size to 200 GB for a medium scale environment.

    • Increase the disk size to 500 GB for a large scale environment.
