VMWare ESXi on Dell servers, How to use RAID management without shutting down?
Posted on 2009-02-09
We are just about to begin converting our physical servers to VMWare ESXi, and i keep coming up with questions...
All of our servers, well not that many, just 4 of them. are PowerEdge 2850 and 2950.
We use the OpenManage management and it can manage the RAID in Windows without bringing the server down to enter the boot screen.
How do you do that in VMWare? and How do you perform a BIOS / Firmware update in VMWare?
THE DELL SUU DVD / CD does not work under anything but Windows. Unlike HP has a all in one DVD that will boot itself and updates everything at once.
