Before installing vCenter Server the Platform Services Controller endpoints must be updated to reflect the name of the load balancers virtual IP.

Before completing this procedure a DNS A record must be created. This A record is the FQDN of the load balancer with the IP address of mgmt01psc51.lax01.rainpole.local. After the load balancer is setup this DNS record is changed to the virtual IP of the load balancer.
