I am intend to administer 2 VMware esxi 5.5 hosts. I was given a MS Windows 2008 R2 64-bit server. How can I setup a vCenter on this server so as I can link both hosts under the same administration? Do I have to join this server as the member of the AD domain? or can I set this server as DC as well? Please show step-by-step.
