We’d like to focus today on a KB article which tries to address all the issues encountered by the users with regard to View Event Database deployment. The article includes a list of basic steps that will help you address all the issues that might be encountered during or after your deployment.
Configuring VMware View Event database on an SQL server fails with the error: An error occurred while attempting to configure the database (1029537)
Users actions are recorded about View Manager events. If this database is not configured you would need to look in the log files to gather information about events, and the logs contain very limited information.
Configuration of the event database will fail if the user has not met the prerequisites required. Our KB article helps users meet all the required prerequisites needed, from network connectivity, to SQL server, to correct credentials for database accounts, ports and firewall status.
If you find your issue persists after validating all the 12 steps mentioned in the article, then the potential cause for the issue might be an older version of the JDBC driver. Newer versions have a number of bug fixes for SSL certificate issues. Following the steps to install new version of JDBC driver should address all the issue and completes the configuration of VMware View event database successfully. Of course, if you’re unsure or still struggling, by all means contact our support team.
