Hi, yes you can run vcenter vm and other vms in the same host. (if thats your question)

Also, if you want to create a lab o whatever you want to do, you can have multiple vCenter VMs in the same host (note that a ESXi host can only by managed by 1 vcenter at a time)

 

Cheers

Yes, one a HOST, i installed VCSA and also build several virtual machines.

I use Vmware-VCSA-all-7.0.0-16189094.iso to install Linux VCSA on the same host as other VMs.

As mentioned by the other users, it's possible to run the vCSA on the same host. However, keep in mind that in case you use e.g. Update Manager, you cannot update the host on which the vCSA is running, because the update requires that all VMs on the host are shut down.
