You must create an account that the vRealize Hyperic Server will use to connect to the vRealize Hyperic database.


  1. Change the user to postgres and run # psql to connect to the database locally.
  2. Run CREATE USER hqadmin WITH ENCRYPTED PASSWORD 'hqadmin'; to create a user named hqadmin with login and createdb privileges.

    The ENCRYPTED keyword is optional.

  3. Run CREATE DATABASE "HQ" OWNER hqadmin ENCODING 'UTF8'; to create a default database for vRealize Hyperic.

    Placing quote marks around the HQ string makes the database name uppercase.

What to do next

Install the vRealize Hyperic server. See Installing and Configuring the vRealize Hyperic Server.
