    Remotely installing esxi using script

    Kermitdafwog Enthusiast



      I am looking for a way of creating a script to automate the rebuilding of an ESXi host at one of our remote client offices.  The script would ideally run without the requirement of a USB disk, cd/dvd or ftp/tftp etc but I'm not sure of this is possible.  If it isnt, what are my remaining options?


      I have gone through a few documents on setting this up but most expect a tftp server, dhcp server (for PXE) along with a linux box ont he network - these are provisions we simply dont have, we just want to save a 200 mile trip on the off chance of ever having to rebuild an ESXi host.


      Any ideas etc would be gratefully received
