You can install ESXi on multiple machines using a single script for all of them or a separate script for each machine.

For example, because disk names vary from machine to machine, one of the settings that you might want to configure in a script is the selection for the disk to install ESXi on.

Table 1. Scripted Installation Choices



Always install on the first disk on multiple machines.

Create one script.

Install ESXi on a different disk for each machine.

Create multiple scripts.

For information about the commands required to specify the disk to install on, see Installation and Upgrade Script Commands.
