Rollout of 20 ESX Servers

Hello All

I have to rollout 20 ESX 3.0 servers and would like to either Ghost or script the actual build of the ESX server. Could someone reccomend a way of doing this. This would also include the partitioning of the machien. Im open to just about anything....

IMHO scripting is the way to go. There are several examples on the forums of build scripts and partition sizes.

Do a search on ks.cfg

What platforms? Do you have HP RDP? If yes then it has the facility to deploy ESX to HP platforms built in.

in fact any of the Altiris derivitants will do this, including the Dell and IBM versions.

it is fairly straight forward to do this.
