Unable to install Hyperic HQ


I am trying to install Hyperic HQ with in built database. I followed the Quick Install guide and chose options 1,3 (for Server and Agent).

The installer prompted me for database option - i chose default (2) and then it asked for uid/passwd and connect URL. I entered those but install fails at tha point. I am assuming that this tries to install in built database.

has anyone run into this error before?


Attached is the log file -------------->

Looks like you have the "noJRE" installer. Which means there is no
built in database. You have two options:
1. Download a platform specific installer and install HQ with the
built-in database.
2. Install a database on your platform and point HQ at that database.


That is correct.

I did try with Windows specific installer and it worked fine - thanks.

However, if i choose the no JRE installer - the only db supported are Oracle/Postgres. Is there any support for SQl Server 2005?

At the moment there is no planned support for SQL Server on the backend.
