Good evening. I’ve been trying to work this out in my head all night, but I’m finally tapping out. I have 2 ESXi servers I am turning up next week. They will physically be racked at “Site A”. I am wanting to deploy a VCSA at “Site B” which happens to be our vcolo data center (3rd party). The VCSA will eventually have data centers for each of our other physical sites (4 data centers total, each with two hosts). But for now I’m only concerned with “A”. So far, I have configured a Windows Server 2019 Data Center VM at “Site B” and tried to run the VCSA installer. The part I’m confused by is when it asks for an ESXi host or existing vCenter server to live on. I want the virtual appliance to live on the VM I built at “Site B”. Is it best practice to have a vCenter appliance running on each physical VM environment, or can it be done by one VCSA with data centers for each physical environment? Thanks for any input! If I can provide more clarity somewhere, please feel free to ask!
