Installation VCSA 6.0 upgrade 2

Good afternoon,

Currently I have to install a new VCSA version 6.0 upgrade 2. I already downloaded and iso the indicated version, but I have some doubt and I hope you can clarify it.

I connect to the client's machine via Team Viewer, it has a Windows 7 operating system, and from there I am connected by the vsphere client to the ESXi.

I was watching several videos on YouTube about how to do the installation and I could see that the VCSA 6.0 iso deployment is running on a server with Windows server 2012 and another video that I saw in Windows server 2008.

M question is the following I would have to connect to the server with windows server operating system and load the iso from there? Or can I deploy the iso from the client computer with windows 7?

In the same way I saw that during the installation, you are asked for the data of the esxi where you want to host the VCSA and the datastore.

Can someone clarify the doubt please? Thank you very much in advance.

I'm sure I answered this today....

Any Windows OS can install VCSA, just make sure the Windows computer can communicate with the ESXi host.

On installation, it will ask you to select a host datastore.

Please see my EE Article, step by step tutorial with screenshots

Good afternoon,

I proceeded to destroy all the vcsa and started with the installation of a new vcsa. In addition, the DNS record was validated to validate the FQDN, the installation was successful and the vcenter is operational.
