What help do you need exactly?

You've deployed a new VCSA 7 appliance and now you want to migrate your hosts and VMs across to it?

Are you also upgrading your hosts? (on the same or new hardware)

Than you do misunderstood something.  You dont have to do a separate VCSA 7.0 installation when you want to migrate your existing vCenter.  The VCSA comes with a migration wizard and its "one" step  and at the end you have a VCSA with the inventory of the old vCenter. The old vCenter is automaticly shutdown during the migration.
