Last Modified: 2015-04-26
My company has just started to get Cisoc UCS B-Series servers and we are going to set them up as boot from SAN. We have a seperate storage group than managed every aspect of or SAN. I personally have never setup ESXI to boot from SAN. I have aready read the following article but have the following question.

1) WHen you present LUN0 to one host ato install ESXI on do you then present the same LUN to other server so they  can boot from the same image.

2) If all host boot from SAN and do not have local storage where are settings like network, host name etc stored. If the host is reboot they would be lost since it would be in memory only. Does the UCS manager help with this at all? We are not using Auto Deploy
