Hello Experts,

I have downloaded what I think is vCenter Server, see image. Its and ISO.

Can someone let me know if I need to burn it to disk? Or do I somehow use my vSphere client to install it?

Thank you

Carlton

Hi Roshan,

Roshan,

I'm a little confused.

I've burned the image to cd.

I would like to install the server on my Windows 7 Professional OS. Is that possible?

Cheers

@Roshan Could you try and at least post the up to date version! Rather than the first thing which appears in Google!

All VMware vSphere 5.5 documents are here:-

https://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-pubs.html

I would also recommend fellow vExpert 15 Part Series on Installing vCenter Server here

If you want to be up and running quickly...grab and download the Appliance, it's already to go, just needs configuration, as vCenter Server for WIndows needs installation and configuration on a Windows Server.

Most of us use the Appliance in labs, it's quick to deploy.

As for your question, there is no need to burn to CDROM, just upload the ISO to the datastore, and attach the ISO to your WIndows Server to install.

see my EE Articles

Part 3: HOW TO: Create an ISO CD-ROM/DVD-ROM image (*.iso), and MD5 checksum signature, for use with VMware vSphere Hypervisor 5.1 (ESXi 5.1)

Part 4: HOW TO: Upload an ISO CD-ROM/DVD-ROM image to a VMware datastore for use with VMware vSphere Hypervisor 5.1 (ESXi 5.1) using the vSphere Client, and checking its MD5 checksum signature is correct.

I'm afraid not, Server OS only. Windows 7 is not supported.

If you have access to the vCenter appliance, I would highly recommend for a Lab!
