I have gone thru setting up ESXi V4,1 and V5 on traditional internal hard drives.
While learning how to set up ESXi, I saw some articles that advocate the use of either USB Jump Drive and use internal hard drives you have in your server as data partition?
I am ready to install VMware Server for my customer and going to order a new Server with 6 SAS 15K HDs. I would like to use all 6 HD space as a one big data partition if I load OS on a separate storage device.
If you have personal experience, can you shed some light on the subject?
Also is it worth buying a paid version of ESXi vs free version?
Thanks in advance.
