Sub: Best deployment strategy to install vCenter Server in a two host ESXi pair with HA
I have to design a system with two HP Servers running VMware ESXi 5.5 with High Availability enabled. I wanted to know the best strategy to install vCenter Server
Currently, I first installed Host 1 with Esxi and then created a VM on it and installed vCenter Server (running on Host 1). I then installed Host 2 with Esxi and then added the Host 1 & 2 into a HA pair with the vCenter Server ... is this a right thing to do? what precautions should I take to avoid loss of vCenter data.
Best deployment strategies appreciated.
