Administration workstation?

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

Glad you like my EE Article!

Any computer running Windows!

e.g. the computer you sit at doing your Admin!

My Admin workstation is either my laptop running Windows 8 or my fixed workstation running Vista or Windows 7.

These happen to be physical devices.

Sorry to keep pestering you but I finally have vCenter6.0 installed and I am trying to update licenes and I get the error message of "To view and manage licenses, you must have the Global.Licenses privilege on the vCenter Server system where this vSphere Web Client runs."  I found online where it says "Log in to the vSphere Web Client with the Administrator@vsphere.local" but I have no clue what the password for "Administrator@vsphere.local" is because I never set up anything with that username.  Could you please point me in the correct direction once again?
