Please can some one let me know if what I am trying to do is possible. I am trying to set up the Ultimate Deployment Appliance tool for the install of multiple ESXi 4.1 update 1 onto HP Blades 490 servers (with flash memory).
I have successfully been able to deploy the UDA server as per the following instructions on this website:
The new hosts that are to built with ESXi 4.1 update 1 pick up this UDA as PXE point and starts to boot, starts to parse the installation kick start script, and then errors out with "autopart --firstdisk specified, but no suitable disk found". I can confirm the same build works fine on the older blades using hard disks.
I have confirmed the new hardware is on the HCL for vmware. I am not sure if there is a specific variable I need to use for flash memory, I have been over KB (page 35) but can not determine what would be used:
Alternatively if there are any other methods/scripts that some one already has for the deployment of ESXi 4.1 Update 1, that would be much appreciated.
