I had this question after viewing HOW TO: Deploy and Install the VMWARE vCenter Server Appliance 6.0 (VCSA 6.0).

Most of this seems easy to follow once it gets started but where to start has been my issue with this deployment.   Normally an install on a host is done through the VSphere Client but this seems to be different.

In your article, and in some other training, it talks about the computer your using for your deployment.  You refer to this in the line "Burn or Mount the VMware-VCSA-all-6.0.0-2175370.iso (DVD image) on your Administration workstation."  My question: is the "Administration Workstation" any computer or is it any computer on the ESXi Host where I am installing it or is there some other requirement for the computer used to do the installation?

Sorry if this seems to be a simple question but I don't want to start an install on one of my servers before I am sure of what I am doing.

Thanks,
Keith
