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.

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.
