  2. Under Custom Install, select vCenter Single Sign-On, and click Install.
  3. Follow the prompts in the installation wizard to choose the installer language, and agree to the end user patent and license agreements.
  4. If you are installing a new instance of Single Sign-On, proceed to 5. If you are upgrading an existing installation of Single Sign-On, take the following steps:
    1. Enter the password for the Single Sign-On administrator account.
    2. Proceed to 9.
  5. Accept or change the HTTPS port for vCenter Single Sign-On.
  6. Select the deployment mode Multisite.
