Can You Have Just One Instance of the Data OnTAP-v Installer VM?

TMADOCTHOMAS

We are planning to push out Data OnTAP EDGE to several of our remote offices.  Is it possible to set up the Data OnTAP-v Installer here at our main headquarters and have it manage each EDGE installation?  Or is it a better practice to have an Installer VM at each location?  Assume that all VM's are connected to the same vCenter server.

I would have at least one per vcenter, although you could just use one. 

You would probably be better off with one per location.  The actual ontap-v ovf file is embedded in the installer, which gets pushed out during the vm setup wizard.
