Can Vcenter and VCSA Appliance be put on the same VM? I do not want to use another license for the vCSA Appliance.

I want to use the vCSA Appliance to do updates and patches on my Vcenter. My vCenter (Version 6.7) is currently a WIndows 2012 Server. I installed vCSA on the vCenter server and it created another VM which works great but it is asking for an additional license and made it a trial version. Is there a way to combine VCSA and Vcemter into one VM so I don;t need to use another license. I would even convert my Vcemter to Linux if it would work.

what are you trying to accomplish?
you can migrate from the windows vm to the appliance (which you should do anyway since the windows server is deprecated)

I would even convert my Vcemter to Linux if it would work.
that's what I would expect you to do...you can migrate from windows to the appliance

After creating the VM, it provides a path as Andrew points out that this is a migration.at which point it will connect to your existing vCenter and pull the data info.
