VMware has done a great job with this new VCSA 6.5 appliance. You have already seen my lab deployment of VCSA 6.5 by using VMware Workstation – just to test the workflow, but today we’ll do another lab post. You’ll watch and learn How to deploy VMware VCSA 6.5 (VMware vCenter Server Appliance).I have also […] Read the full post How to deploy VMware VCSA 6.5 (VMware vCenter Server Appliance) at ESX Virtualization.
VMware has announced that VMware vSphere 6.5 has gone general available this week. Now installing VMware vCenter Server Appliance 6.5 (VCSA) is even easier as the requirement for the client integration plugin has been removed and now the VCSA appliance is delivered via an ISO image with an installation wizard that’s been broken up into two stages.
On a bit of a shorter note to my previous article/novella1 – I have been moving my lab to a bit more of an “enterprise” style architecture – deploying SRM was in the way for that, so I had the need to set up another vCenter, however this gave the opportunity to move to a multi-PSC, multi-VC architecture.
If you remember in the first post of vSphere 6.5, I talked about the improvements in the VCSA 6.5 installer. Well, we are going to now take a look at the VCSA 6.5 installer and use to deploy our VCSA 6.5 appliance.
