Before Starting the Installation it is very important to have the DNS configured for the both forward and Reverse for the VC Appliance.

Once we download the ISO , we need to mount it to the local system.

In the root directory we can see the vcsa-setup.html and before proceeding it we need to install the VMware-ClientIntegrationPlugin-6.0.0.exe .
