Installing VCSA on VMware Workstation 16

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:

from https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/7.0/rn/vsphere-vcenter-server-701-release-notes.html

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:5480 in 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

Workaround: None.
