BL 460 G9 USB boot

Hi

We normally uses 2 internal disks in raid 1 to install our OS on.

 

but there is inside the blade one USB slot and one SD card slot.

Is there any way to install OS on those and still get the raid 1 redundancy?

Re: BL460c Gen9 USB boot

Many users use an SD card to boot the OS from. Not every OS supports this, but at least ESX does.

Another (IMHO better) option is this:

An USB device that holds 2 mirrored SD cards.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: BL460c Gen9 USB boot

of course you can use an SD card only if supported by the OS.

Hope this helps!
