Is there any difference between using the VMware vSphere 5.5 Essentials Plus Kit installation media and the standard ESXi installation media when installing vSphere Hypervisor ESXi on a host server?
I ask this because I have to make up some installation steps in advance of actually purchasing and installing the VMware vSphere 5.5 Essentials Plus Kit.
I am already reading the this article supplied by Andrew Hancock:
And I thank you, Andrew, for that excellent resource.
And I don't care about version differences so much (since my installation steps are going to be general in nature, with the purpose of declaring what I'm going to be doing, not instructing anyone how to do it).
What I'm wondering is, if there are special setup steps applicable to the install media of an Essentials Plus Kit compared to the standard ESXi installation.
Thanks in advance.
