You need to change the version on the top to 6.0 or try this link. https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/info/slug/datacenter_cloud_infrastructure/vmware_vsphere/6_0

I think you are referring to VCSA (VMware vCenter Server Appliance, e.g. vCenter on Linux)

when you log in, and go to Downloads, and select 6.0.

select Essentials, select VMware vCenter Server 6.0 U1

and it's there in the list - VMware vCenter Server Appliance

Thanks I was just going to post that I found it as well but I see the vCA is an ISO. How do I deploy the appliance from an ISO. I thought it should be an OVA

VMware changed from an OVA to ISO install, in 6.0 (from 5.5). The installer connects to ESXi, and deloys the VM for you...after answering questions in wizard.

You need to read my EE Article (yes I have one!)

Insert cdrom/dvdrom in a computer, or mount ISO in VM, click the Autorun, and follow the wizard...
