You can install vCloud Connector Server in vSphere 4.0, 4.1, 5.0, or 5.1.

You must have an administrator account on the vSphere in which you deploy the vCloud Connector Server. You must have the unzipped version of the template you downloaded in Download the vCloud Connector Virtual Appliances.


Log on to vSphere Client.


Select File > Deploy OVF template.


Click Browse to navigate to the OVF directory of the Server zip file.


Click Next.


Proceed through the wizard.

You can either use the Networking Properties step in the wizard to set basic network properties or you can wait and set those properties when you configure your server.


If you are going to use a static IP address, you need to assign it here. Proxy information is set during Configure vCloud Connector Server


In the vSphere Client, select Inventory > VMs and Templates to see the created virtual machine in the tree.


Right-click the virtual machine and select Power > Power on to power on the machine.


Click the Summary tab and find the vCloud Connector Server's IP address in the General section. The IP address field (not the Host field) displays the IP address of the vCloud Connector Server. Make a note of the IP address. You will need it later in the process.
