You can use the GUI installer to perform an interactive deployment of a vCenter Server Appliance and register it with an existing external Platform Services Controller instance. You must run the GUI deployment from a Windows, Linux, or Mac machine that is in the network on which you want to deploy the appliance.
Note:vCenter Server deployments using an external
Platform Services Controller will not be supported in a future vSphere release. Deploy or upgrade to a
vCenter Server deployment using an embedded
Platform Services Controller. For more information, see the VMware Knowledge Base article
