VSICM51 - Slide 14-25 - vCenter Server Installation Wizard



1. Wrong:

In the slide notes, the unordered list item "SYSTEM account or user-specified account", which states the vCenter Server service account requirements, is incomplete.

Even if you do not use Windows authentication for SQL Server, you might want to set up a local user-specified account for vCenter Server. The only requirement is that the user-specified account must be an administrator on the local machine.
1. Correct:

Actually, the domain user account permissions pre-requisites are three:

  • Member of the Administrators group.
  • Act as part of the operating system.
  • Log on as a service.

2. Wrong:

In the slide notes, the unordered list item "vCenter ports", which lists the network ports required by vCenter Server, is incomplete.

2. Correct:

The most up-to-date list of the required ports for vCenter Server can be found in the online documentation following the link provided below (the page also provides a link for the documentation page listing ports required by the vCenter Server Virtual Appliance).
