Spare blade

We have ladeSystem c7000 det up by external consultant and he said the following:
Out of your 8 blades you have to dedicate one blade for blade system management. He installed win2008 server on the 8th blade and dedicated it EVA Command and View and some other HP Management software. (see attachments)

I'm curioius why would we waste the whole blade.... we have 7 blades dedicated to VMWare, can we just remove Windows 2008 from this server and dedicate it to VMWare as well? (and install CV EVA on some other machine which is not part of the blade system?)

Thanks

Re: Spare blade

Your management software doesn't need to be in the blade enclosure. Any system meeting the pre-requirements would be fine.
