I have this thing where when I deploy things in my lab at home I do it manually and without reading documentation. I find that by doing this I will run into common problems that happen during deployments. The first time I installed VCAC at home just completing the pre-reqs were a pain and took a ton of time but I learned alot more about roles and features that are required than I wanted to.

This is something that I think everyone should do but my second install is based on documentation. I found this post from the PowerCLI blog that saved me a ton of time and if I could find the person that did this I would buy them a beer and a plastic barbie mobile




I would hope that in future releases that this would be a part of the install but I’m glad that someone found an issue and wrote something to solve it.
