So today I was installing VMware Horizon View Composer on my Server 2012 R2 vCenter machine, where the SQL database is also local to this machine.
And I came across the below error,
"Error 1920, Service VMware Horizon View Composer (svid) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start the system service"
Which I something I’ve dealt with before, but I must admit I forgot the fix, and was looking into the following area’s;
- Check account is Administrator and has “Log on as a Service” right
- Check there is no pending restarts
- Check ODBC is set up correctly and gives a successful message when testing
