    Scratch Location Host Profile Setting for Stateless Auto Deployed ESXi 5 hosts

      Hi

       

      I'm building out an Auto Deploy solution as part of a vSphere 5 design for a client and we are using stateless/diskless servers for it. My problem is we are using Distributed Virtual Switches so it means we can't use the vSphere ESXi 5.0 Network Dump Collector feature. So we are going to have to create a scratch partition for the servers but these need to be manually created for each server as they can't all point to the same location. Has anyone found an easier way of redirecting the scratch location for the servers via host profiles that means i don't have to manually create a partition for every server?

       

      Thanks
