So I just downloaded the latest HipChat Datacenter OVA last week. I deployed it to a vSphere environment, but I'm struggling to get it to work. After getting a static IP set (putting the interfaces file in ~admin/config/etc does not do it as the readme.txt states), I browsed to the IP. I was surprised to see it wanted an external PostgreSQL database. So I got that setup and now I'm getting an error about being unable to create the schema. I poked around some logs and see it complaining about not being able to connect to Redis on the localhost (appliance). I've done some googling and it looks like I need to setup this Redis software on yet another host?
To me, when I download an appliance, it should prompt for an IP and a password, then "just work". Sure, maybe a setup wizard or something to configure other stuff -- but it should all be self-contained. Otherwise, why would I bother with an appliance? Am I missing something. Ready to give up on it and stick with my simple Jabber server (that is self-contained).
I suggest reading over the documentation. There is a LOT more involved in setting up HipChat Data Center than there was with HipChat Server. It's not an appliance any more.
