When installing an instance of a VMware vSphere vCenter Server virtual appliance, version 6.0 Update 1, I ran into an issue who's cause wasn't very apparent. While deploying the vCSA through Google Chrome, the process hung at the following step:
The deployment log files are located at:
C:\Users\vmwareUser\AppData\Local\VMware\CIP\vcsaInstaller\sessions\session_0004\logs. The logs gave no indication of the problem.
This was ultimately due to an incorrect configuration within DNS. The DNS entry was not setup for the vCSA. After creating the correct DNS entry and restarting the deployment, it completed successfully.
