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.

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.
