So I’ve just deployed a Cisco UCS B Series system, which is on the HCL as supported by VMware for ESXi 6.0
However there is no install media available as for previous ESXi versions.
How to install ESXi 6.0 on Cisco UCS
Quite simple actually, I installed the Customised version of ESXi 5.5 update 2d onto the B series servers, and then deployed vCenter 6.0, after setting up update manager, I imported the standard ESXi 6.0 ISO, and upgraded the hosts using update manager.
After a week, I can report that I’ve found no issues with this at all.
I posted on reddit about the location or availability of the media, and someone suggested this method of install, further more another user stated their Cisco Account Manager said everything should work with the standard ESXi install for the B200 M4 blades and not need additional drivers.
Hope this clears it up for some users who are hunting around for install media or an explanation that doesn’t yet officially exist.
