Hi, Today I want to install vCenter 8.0 Update1.
You can find system prerequisites on this page.
I downloaded VCSA 8.0 ISO from VMware.com and run the installer.
I choose Install.
Note: The external Platform Services Controller deployment has been deprecated.
Note: Installing the vCenter Server is a two-stage process. The first stage involves deploying a new vCenter Server to the target ESXi host or a compute resource in the target vCenter Server. The second stage completes the setup of the deployed vCenter Server. Next
2- License agreement, click on the checkbox. Next
3- Specify the vCenter Server deployment target settings. The target is the ESXi host or vCenter Server will be deployed.
On this page, fill in all the blank fields, Next
