Let’s get started….
Stage 1 Deployment
First of all you need to setup your DNS entries for your vCenter Appliance as that’s a common requirement for every deployment.
It will open up a “vCenter Server Appliance installer” installer wizard and you can select below options for the deployment according to your requirement.
- Install – Fresh installation of the VCSA appliance
- Upgrade – Perform a VCSA upgrade
- Migrate – That’s a new feature which you can use to migrate your old vCenter server to a new VCSA6.5 appliance.
- Resetore – You can backup your vCenter from the VCSA management console and this is an option to restore the vCenter from your backup. Click on “Install” to start the deployment.
