Insert the VCSA Disc
/ISO and find the VMWare-ClientIntergrationPlugin.exe
Once this is
installed, we can then use the web browser to install vCSA
To open the browser,
on the disc go to the vcsa-setup.html file. This will start an internet browser
and you will need to allow the plugin to run.
There are 11 steps
to the installer most are simple.
- Accept Licence
- Enter the IP/FQDN of the ESXi
serve to which the vCSA VM will be installed along with its username and
password. (Accept the certificate warning if cert is self signed)
- Specify VM name and OS
- Select the type of
deployment, Embedded or External Platform Services controller.
- Create or Join a SSO domain
(NOT AD DOMAIN) – Domain cannot be the same as AD Domain. Domain example
could be vSphere.local
- Select appliance size
- Select either internal or
Oracle database. (You can select Thin Provisioning here if you need to).
- Set the VMs IP configuration
- Confirm all settings.
You can now login to
the vCSA server via https://vcsa.lab.local/vsphere-client
