Deploying VMware ESXi 5.0 Using the Scripted Install Feature

This article explains how to setup Scripted Install, and some of the features that might be useful to you when getting started. This is not a compehrensive guide, but should be used as a reference when setting up your Scripted Install environment. For more detailed information on setting up Scripted Install, see the ESXi and vCenter Server Installation and Setup guide.

The scripted install feature of ESXi 5.0 provides an efficient way to deploy multiple ESXi hosts. You can quickly deploy ESXi hosts using unattended installations with Scripted Install. The installation script ( ks.cfg) contains settings for your ESXi hosts that can be modified to suit the needs of your enviroment. You can apply the script to all hosts that you want to have a similar configuration. This allows you to perform swift installations, in a shorter amount of time than it would by perfoming a manual installation. In addition, this ensures that all hosts have similar configurations and are built to the standard you want.
