The basic steps are:

  1. Verify compatibility, i.e. that the server model, and components are supported for the ESXi version you are going to install
  2. Upgrade iDRAC, BIOS, firmware ...
  3. Create DNS records for the ESXi host, and the vCenter Server. Remember to create Host-A (forward), and PTR (reverse) entries for vCenter Server!
  4. Install ESXi using the Dell customized installation image
  5. Configure settings, like networking (IP, subnet, gateway, DNS, vSwitches, Portgroups, ...), NTP, Datastores, etc.
  6. Deploy the vCenter Server Appliance on the ESXi host (Hint: Don't deploy the vCSA as "Tiny", but select at least "Small" in the deployment wizard)

For further details, please see the documentation.

Thread reported to moderators, this is a general vSphere question and nothing to do with the Converter SDK.
