Vmware Horizon View 6 "Unable to connect to view composer"
Posted on 2014-07-23
We are setting up vmware Horizon View 6 for a single domain environment of about 200 users. I have followed the VM Horizon 6.0 Installation Guide word for word. I am working with Server 2012 R2 servers, one each for the following roles: Composer, Connection server, Security server. I have made it to the point where I am trying to add the vcenter server in VMware Horizon View Administrator on the connection server. I have configured the viewcomposer databse in SQL Server Express 2012 as indicated by the horizon guide.
I have configured SSL certificates issues by a CA on our domain and installed the certs on the composer and connection server. When I am on the connection server localhost/admin/ I go to View Configuration -> Servers -> Add and I enter the vsphere ip and credentials as the IP for the Vcenter server address: IPaddress, domain\vcenteradmin and password -> view certificate -> accept -> Standalone View Composer Server -> Viewcomposerserver.domain.local -> domain\vcenteradmin -> password -> Next
And I am getting the error message "Unable to connect to View Composer"
I have also tried adding a user in vcenter as vsphere.local\vcenteradmin with full admin privileges and still had no success.
