Yet again, time for another spoon feeding tutorial.
I'm getting started with vCAC and I found it quite the task to get a GUI Next Next Next type of installation to install correctly. There is already a great article by Randy over at killercouds, VMware vCAC 5.1 Install Process – Overview, but it needs a "beginner's" touch. We will reference it as we go along. This tutorial is going to be for lab purposes ONLY. I am installing everything on a single server, utilizing an existing SQL server, and not implementing anything SSL/HTTPS based. For any production installation, please follow https://www.vmware.com/pdf/vcac-51-installation-guide.pdf
Step 1. Start off with a clean Windows 2008 R2 VM. Download vCAC-51-Installation.zip and vCAC-51-Extensibility.zip, un-pack the archives to your desktop. Also download vCAC_PrereqSetup.ps1 from http://killerclouds.com/?p=203 and place it on the desktop. And download your XML license file and place it on your desktop.
Step 2. Download and install .NET 4.5 Framework.
