With the VMWare vSphere 4.1 Update 1 suite, it is possible to use the Blu-Ray recorder of Server as a PXE Server or as an iSCSI Target of the entire LAN? If not, you can tell me how to do that?
It may be possible to use the device using VMdirectpath to provide access to a virtual machine but I don't believe you could use the record function. http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1010789 or http://www.vmware.com/resources/techresources/10170 VMdirectpath requires hardware support in the server. If successful you would need to add software to the Virtual Machine to provide iSCSI target software or PXE server support.
