Dell iDRAC Vflash

Dear all

I don't know this is right forum to post this query or not.. if not please admin transfer to right forum



I have ordered Dell R720 with 2 GB SD cards. but there is no SD cards in the server, I can see near to power supply, there is slots for SD cards but those are empty.

So but there is a SD card 8GB for iDRAC Vflash. can we create a paritition on that Vflash & install the VMware ESXI 5.5

please reply..

Thanks in advance

Thanks & Regards

RE: Dell iDRAC Vflash

Hello TechExpert,

Yes, this is the correct forum.

Regarding how to use partitions on the vFlash, please reference the following:

Section 11: Persistent Storage (vFlash) Use Cases 

Section 4.4: Boot to ISO from vFlash

  • This workflow boots the host system from an ISO image located on the vFlash.

From the partition you create, store the VMware image on it. Then from there it gets installed onto your hard drive or virtual disk.

Hope this helps,
