VCSA(Vcenter) 6.5 in VMware ESXI6.5

This post was originally published on this site

hi , i’m running a lab with a server which has EXSI and a couple of running VMs on it .

i’m managing it from the VMWARE ESXI web tool , i have 2 datastores (one big and one small ).


And here is the problem…  i am trying to install VCSA 6.5 on a VM with windows server 2016 ,

I’m deploying the VCenter to a VM with ESXI OS , and then i’m getting stuck where i need to pick datastore for storing the VCSA files , because

the requirements tells that i need 250 GB of free space , which i don’t have on the small datastore , but i do have on the big datastore , but it’s not viewed

in the options to select , like the EXSI host does not know about it , even do it stored in the big datastore .

even with the thin disk mode i still can’t get forward with the installation .


what am i doing wrong ? please help
