ESX Hardware Boot options (via vCenter GUI)
Not sure if this one is new or not but I’ve NEVER seen the Boot Options before in vCenter for a host. I think it’s pretty cool! You can change the Boot Device options for the host. Handy and clever.. These particular hosts were running ESXi 4.1 so I know it’s not a new feature from vSphere 5. Not sure if this is a feature of the R710 alone or a combination of the hardware and ESXi. If you know, drop me a note in the comments. Thanks.
