Hello! Have 6.5.0 running ESXI with virtual machines. Purchased essential with the ability to install vCenter Server Essentials and vSphere 6 , but I have a little does not work maybe because of misunderstanding...
Downloaded the ISO, but it is not bootable... please Tell me how to install vCenter? The main goal is the creation of backups on a schedule of standard tools
For a single host availability for vCenter is not required, because the vCenter environment management system virtualization in which many hosts (from several pieces to several thousand pieces). To study the work of the vCenter it can certainly deliver, but with bonuses it will not.
vCenter is placed either on the Windows machine (from the attached iso) or VCSA (Service application) - a ready-made virtual reality and which is configured almost the same as the Hyper - initial setup from the console, then webmerge.
Means backup in vCenter no. vCenter management environment. And nothing more.

If I'm not mistaken, this is not Vcenter virtualization system is a software which is installed on the operating system and not on bare metal, so it is not bootable.
So mount/extract the contents of this image in some folder and run the installer.
The installation wizard guides you through the stages and at the output you will need a vcenter server to which you can connect with vsphere to manage your hypervisors and configure everything you need.

Here is a good article, you need mode Embeded PSC, as the infrastructure is small. Size is best to choose small. First you need to install the vSphere hypervisor
