You install vCenter Inventory Service as part of a simple installation. You installed vCenter Single Sign On in the previous task. Inventory Service stores vCenter Server application and inventory data, which lets you search and access inventory objects across linked vCenter Server instances.

Verify that the VMware vCenter Simple Install application has started the vCenter Inventory Service installer.

In the VMware vCenter Simple Install window, click Install and wait for the installation to finish.

You have installed the required vCenter components, and can continue with the installation of vCenter Server.
