NOTE - need to create vCD Database before running the install!

Installing vCD:
1. Create VM in vSphere
2. Place RHEL ISO on Datastore the VM can connect to
3. Connect new VM CD Drive to RHEL ISO
4. Go through RHEL install process
5. Once installed, configure RHEL upon bootup
6. Log in to RHEL VM Console with root and root pwd created
7. Create a 'temp' directory (I create a 'support' directory) - mkdir support (you can create 'prep' or whatever)
8. Using WinSCP, copy the .bin vCD file (downloaded from VMware) to this new temp directory on your RHEL VM
9. Create SSL Certs using keytool commands (see vCD Install Guide)
10. Change permissions on the newly created certificates.ks file
11. Disable firewall on RHEL (type 'setup' at RHEL prompt), and set up NIC IPs, etc.
12. Modify RHEL NIC config files using VI (cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts)
13. Change the "onboot" to say 'yes' instead of 'no'
14. Download/copy libXdmcp.xxxx.rpm file to temp directory (same one as in #7
15. Change permissions on the lib file and vCD install file
16. Install the libXdmcp file (rpm -i libXdmcp-1.0.3-1.e16.x86_64.rpm)
17. Install the vCD bin file (cd to the temp folder and type: ./vCDinstallFile.bin)

I just went through Chris Wahl's vCD Essentials Trainsignal course :)

The gaps I may have forgot, I would recommend referencing the vCD Install Guide.
