This is awesome. I just enabled vifp on vMA to install a PowerPath on ESX

One more tip:.

when you first boot a vMA, you are requested to enter network options, vi-admin password, then the system perform some additional tasks, like creating the SSH certificates. This only happen once.

If you want to re-activate again this on next reboot, just run the following command

sudo touch /opt/vmware/vima/VMWARE_VIMA_FB_REQUIRED

and reboot

This is awesome! I liked it much. Thanks for sharing!
