Deploying VCSA 6.0 fails with supplied system name is invalid

2015-04-14_16-28-02_01

 

A nice and simple one, the supplied system name (which is the FQDN of the VCSA)  is invalid.

This is because when deploying a new VCSA from scratch, your DNS records should already be created, as the new ISO based installer for the appliance runs a number of scripts to setup vCenter services and the Platform Services Controller.

So you get this error either because your DNS Settings are wrong, or you have not created your DNS records for your vCenter and PSC if it is an external server.
