Scripting Configuration of HBAs for Boot From SAN

Hi all,

I've just created a scripted install of ESX using HP RDP, what I'd like to achieve is a complete zero touch installation and one of the things I want to look at next is whether I can configure the HBAs for boot from SAN via script rather than manually.

We're using Emulex HBAs by the way. I've seen LB6DUTIL mentioned somewhere but there doesn't seem to be a great deal of documentation around it. I'm hoping I might be able to boot to DOS and just feed it a script before kicking off my ESX install.

Just wondered if anyone else has looked at this and can give me any pointers to save me some time?

Cheers guys.
