The system administrator installs the Website component to provide access to infrastructure capabilities in the vCloud Automation Center web console. You can install one or many instances of the Website component, but you must configure Model Manager Data on the machine that hosts the first Website component. You install Model Manager Data only once.

Install the IaaS Database, see Choosing an IaaS Database Scenario.

If you previously installed other components in this environment, verify that you know the passphrase that was created. See Security Passphrase.

If you are using components in your environment, verify that your load balancer meets the configuration requirements.

You must disable the Microsoft loopback check on the installation machine if you are using a load balancer. If you use multiple load balancers or load balance layers, specify the path for each host name. The installation fails otherwise.

See this Microsoft KB article for information on how to disable the loopback check feature. http://support.microsoft.com/KB/926642/EN-US.
