vCenter 5.1 Installation

Prerequisites
vCenter Server 5.1 requires vCenter Single Sign-On and Inventory Service.
You must install these components in this order:
vCenter Single Sign-On,
Inventory Service
vCenter Server
Database Prerequisites
Create a vCenter Server database, unless you plan to install the bundled database.
Create a vCenter Single Sign-On database, unless you plan to install the bundled database.

If you are using an existing database for Single Sign On, you must create a database user (RSA_USER) and database administrator (RSA_DBA) to use for the Single Sign On database installation and setup. To create these users, run the script rsaIMSLiteDBNameSetupUsers.sql. The script is included in the vCenter Server installer download package, at vCenter Server Installation directory\SSOServer

If you are using an existing database with your vCenter Single Sign-On installation or upgrade, make sure that the table spaces are named RSA_DATA and RSA_INDEX. Any other table space names will cause the vCenter Single Sign-On Installation to fail.

If you are using an existing database for Single Sign-On, to ensure that table space is created for the database, run the script rsaIMSLite<DBName>SetupTablespaces.sql. The script is included in the vCenter Server installer download package, at vCenter Server Installation directory\Single Sign On\DBScripts\SSOServer\Schema\your_existing_database. You can run this script prior to the installation, or during the installation, when you are prompted by the installer. You can leave the installer to run the script, and resume the installer after you run the script.
