    Installing VCSA 6.5 in Workstation 14

    peter79 Enthusiast



      First off I wasn't sure if I should post in the vCenter forums or the workstation forums as my issues cover both.  So apologies if I picked the wrong one.


      Previously I was able to install VCSA 6 in workstation 12 using the steps outlined in the following article


      vCenter 6 VCSA External PSC in VMware Workstation - Cloudy Future


      I'm now trying to install VCSA 6.5 using the following article




      However every attempt fails (see screenshot below)

      I read that workstation 14 added additional features to help install VCSA 6.5 in workstation, so I upgraded to 14.  However I'm still hitting the same issue.


      I have windows 2008 domain controller VM running with DNS properly configured (both A and pointer records configured).  I've found a few guides online relating to VCSA 6.5 and workstation 14 and it should work as far as I can see.


      Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.  I've going for the VCP 6.5 delta exam in a few months and would love to get this up and running for study.


      Thanks in advance.
