ESX on c7000, BL460c blade servers, 6G SAS switches, D6000 disk enclosure.

Does anyone have a working ESXi 5.5 farm in an HP c7000 enclosure using an attached D6000 storage array?

If so, can you please share the configuration? 

I’m looking for a working design that fits the following environment, for use with ESXi 5.5.  It exists in an HPE client’s environment.

The available hardware is:

  • 1 x c7000, with:
    • 4 x HP VC FlexFabric 10Gb/24 port modules.
    • 2 x HP 6Gb SAS BL Switches, with Multi-initiator enabled.
  • 4 x BL460c Gen8 with:
    • 2 x E5-2660 Intel CPUs.
    • 256 GB memory.
    • 2 x 300 GB RAID 1 drives.
    • FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 554FLB adapter.
    • Mezz 1: FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 554M adapter.
    • Mezz 2: Smart Array P721m/2G storage controller.
  • 1 x D6000 with:
    • 70 x 2 TB SAS drives, with 31 unused drives each drawer.
