Prerequisites

Create a My VMware account at https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/.

Procedure

  1. Download the vCenter Server installer from the VMware Web site at https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/downloads.
    vCenter Server is part of VMware vCloud Suite and VMware vSphere, listed under Datacenter & Cloud Infrastructure.
  2. VMware provides a SHA-1 hash, a SHA-256 hash, or an MD5 message digest for software downloads. To confirm file integrity, use a SHA-1, SHA-256, and/or a MD5 utility on your computer to calculate your own hash for files downloaded from the VMware web site.
    See the VMware Web site topic Using Cryptographic Hashes at https://www.vmware.com/download/cryptographichashes.html.
