Next Button Greyed Out On stage 2 of Step 2 Vcenter Deployment

Hello,

 

I am trying to deploy a vcenter 7.0.2 appliance. I was able to finish Stage 1 just fine. However on stage 2, the next button is greyed out on step 2 for setting up the Time synchronization mode and SSH Access. I have tried several configurations on this step but still no luck. 

Can anyone advise on what I should try doing?

Have you tried Disabling the SSH Access and Setting up the Time synchronization to either "Host" or an NTP server

I'm in the same boat you are. Have you figured out how to get past this?

Remove FQDN entry and redploy the vCenter, it worked for me

Try accesing vCenter_IP:5480
There you can proceed with the step 2.

login to vcenter with https://<your ip>:5480

Add the DNS Server IP

* I did - it is working fine.

Greetings,

Probably you missed the DNS Server IP.

Connect with your browser to the FQDN name, if you specified it during deployment.

Maybe you must accept self signed SSL certificate.

Same for me. NEXT button greyed out in Firefox but worked in MS EDGE. Stage 2 of vCenter installation didn't start automatically for me because of network issues. But I managed to login into vCenter (7.0.3) after Stage 1 and start stage 2 manually. However, having a DNS and a reverse DNS (PTR) records for vCenter was the key to get it installed correctly.
