I have been doing some reading, and am having trouble getting this one question answered. What is the preferred way to install software? I am creating a new VM deploy workflow, and am not sure how most people do this. Perhaps I am just missing something. Do people usually just use an external script called by part of the workflow, or is there a better way to do it?
I need to install things like SCOM, SCCM, AV, and some standard tools. Normally I would just use a script, copy the installer local, install, and then clean up. Is that bad when you are using vRA, and vRO?
