Welcome to the Community,

in order to evaluate the vCenter Appliance in VMware Workstation, you need to edit the .vmx file prior to powering on the imported image.

Make sure you close the VM's tab (or VMware Workstation) prior to editing the .vmx file to ensure it is reread after the modification!

Thanks for your reply ,

I've checked and have added below settings to vmx file :

guestinfo.cis.deployment.node.type = "embedded"

guestinfo.cis.vmdir.domain-name = "vmeduc.local"

guestinfo.cis.vmdir.site-name = "vmeduc"

guestinfo.cis.vmdir.password = "Password"

guestinfo.cis.appliance.net.addr.family = "ipv4"

guestinfo.cis.appliance.net.addr = "172.16.1.1"

guestinfo.cis.appliance.net.pnid = "172.16.1.1"

guestinfo.cis.appliance.net.prefix = "24"

guestinfo.cis.appliance.net.mode = "static"

guestinfo.cis.appliance.net.dns.servers = "172.16.1.99"

guestinfo.cis.appliance.net.gateway = "172.16.1.99"

guestinfo.cis.appliance.root.passwd = "vmware"

guestinfo.cis.appliance.ssh.enabled = "true"

and restarted  VCSA ,but the problem still exist also I recreated everything from scratch

and I see all of those errors and when it is booting I found this error :
