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.

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.
