Hi there Experts,
Currently I have a vSphere 6 Essentials Plus infrastructure and about 15 clients joined in mydomain.com
Using the same network ip subnet and hardware (switch, internet line) I would like to create an
additional and independent vSphere 6 Essentials infrastructure consisting of 2 Servers
(5 of 15 above clients should have mapped drives connected from those 2 Servers).
ESXi Server 1 will have one Win2012R2 VM and vCenter (VCSA)
ESXi Server 2 will have a replica of the VM of ESXi Server 1
To the best of my knowledge vCenter installation prerequisite is an existing domain
(otherwise the installation fails right?)
Q1) Would be wise to create first a .local domain controller on Server 1 and then deploy the VCSA on Server 1?
Q2) A .local domain will work correctly as a DNS server and have access to the internet?
Q3) Is there any other recommended deploy method given that this additional vSphere infrastructure
should be totally independent from the existing one?
