Deploying ESXi to SAN storage

Use these procedures to deploy VMware ESXi 5.5 to SAN volumes that are attached to servers.

When you deploy an operating system to a SAN, the operating system is deployed to the first SAN boot target that is configured through a server pattern. In addition, a local hard drive cannot be enabled in the server that will be booting from SAN. It must be disabled or removed if a hard drive is present.
