VMware vCenter Server 5.x Appliance instalation and configuration using ssh command line

Here you can find some notes about installing VMware vCenter Appliance from command line directly form ESXi using OVF Tool.


Install the OVF tools first. Details can be found here: http://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2012/05/how-to-deploy-ovfova-in-esxi-shell.html.

Provision VMware vCenter Server 5.x Appliance using OVFtool directly to ESXi and then configure it via SSH

Then you can automatically register the ESXi servers to the vCenter using "joinvCenter.py".
