Intel Xeon 2.13GhZ Dual core
Windows 2008 R2 Ent 64 bit
.Net 3.5 SP1 is installed (add remove programs)...but Windows Features shows 3.0 installed
Windows installer 4.5 installed
Connected to Domain (but is not a domain controller)
Logged in as Domain Admin
Forward and Reverse lookup zones setup and can resolve
I get the following error when running the installer:
"vCenter Server is not supported on this platform. Refer to the installation guide for the supported list of platforms. Make sure that windows is not running as Domain Controller."
Attached are the 2 log files:
Just confirm: Only ".NET Framework 3.5.1" should be installed.
If you choose other features also like WCF activation while installing .net framework 3.5.1 then it will force the installation of IIS which will interfere with vCenter web service.
If you are using separate SQL data base rather that its SQL local instance through SQL express then build 64 bit DSN.
For installation of vCenter 5 please check server minimum requirement. Check out below link:
Thanks for the above, but it wasnt the DB.
I had a corrupted installer. Used a different disk and its worked finally.
