How to install vcenter?

Hi,

I am learning vmware and I was wondering what would be the best way to install Vcenter?
I am seeing multiples ways of doing it but I'm not sure which one is the best way. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

I asked a very similar question I believe, I'm about to start using something called Autolab in my VMWare Workstation environment. Hopefully the below will be of some help to you.

The quickest method for a lab, is to use the vCenter Appliance, which is based on Linux.

However, if you want to use practice installing vCenter Server for WIndows, this is the best resource by fellow vExpert Derek Seaman.
