When provisioning ESX 4, in the manual it says you need to specify a MAC address for the UCS provision. However, the UCS Provisioning job doesn’t create a service profile until runtime so we really don’t know what the MAC address is on the blade until the job has already started because we’re using a MAC pool. For some reason with ESX 4 you can’t specify eth0 and it has to be a MAC address. How do I get around this?
In ESX4 you specify the nic in the kickstart file as --device=vmnic0
