I am currently managing at three chassis UCS 4.1 environment. I have 18 B220M5 servers that are all configured as VMware 6.7 ESXi hosts and they are all configured with Flexflash SD boot disks. We are moving to VMware 7.0 and that requires me to move the OS on all my hosts from SD to SSD drives.
I am looking for help from anyone that knows how to initialize the new SSDs on the blades without effecting the current SD drives. We currently use service templates with our blades to push configuration. Ideally, I would like to install and initialize all the SSD drives in my hosts before I begin the reinstall process.
