I am trying to setup a vCenter 7.0 server on Workstation 16Pro to do some testing in a lab environment. For the life of me I cannot get past this. I have a AD server running with DNS. A and PTR records are in place and tested. I deploy the VCSA appliance via the OVA in workstation. Connect to it over port 5480 and cannot get past this. This is the IP I deployed the VCSA VM on, and it pings fine. Any suggestions? Pulling my hair on this one. Erroring with Unable to Save IP Settings.
This seems to be aknown issue:
Deployment of a vCenter Server Appliance by using port 5480 at stage 2 fails with unable to save IP settings error
If you use
https://appliance-IP-address-or-FQDN:5480in a Web browser, go to the vCenter Server Appliance Management Interface for stage 2 of a newly deployed vCenter Server Appliance, and you configure a static IP or try to change the IP configuration, you see an error such as
Unable to save IP settings.
