Let’s complete deploying of VCSA with external PSC.

In part3.1 I have successfully deployed & configured PSC, so I’m going now to deploy and configure VCSA 6.7 in external PSC mode without HA or LB.

Also; I have created the DNS record for both of them (PSC & VCSA), so I will start deploying the appliance directly.

Step1

After mount vCenter 6.7 ISO, click on install to start deployment and choose vCenter Server (Require External Platform Services Controller), then click Next.

Step2

Insert the destination ESXi server to deploy the appliance, and click Next.

After clicking on Next, ESXi certificate warning will appear, please click yes to accept it and click Next.

Step3

Choose the name of the appliance as much as you want, and insert the root password, then click Next.

Step4

Select the deployment size; I will select tiny method with default storage size then click Next.

After that choose the destination datastore it is either to be local datastore, shared storage, or vSAN storage.

In my scenario, I have selected local datastore as shown below.

Step5

Insert network details and FQDN of your appliance, and make sure this FQDN should match the DNS record you already created, and click Next.

Step6

Waiting for few minutes to complete deployment stage then start the configuration stage, and click continue.

Step7

Start the configuration stage to define SSO domain for VCSA, insert PSC details as per the below image, but to match your PSC data then click Next.

Step8

Verify all information you have inserted, and make sure these details are correct whereas you will not be able to stop this process.

Step9

Witing for few minutes again to finalize this step.

Step10

Once this step finished, that’s meaning you have completed deploy and configured vCenter Server Appliance 6.7 with External PSC.

Finally, I decided to login using HTML5 interface as listed.

Thanks.
