    Hi, we have dellR905 and Dell 6950 does it makes sense to download the esxi from the dell's site OR we should download it from the vmeware's site? The software is going to be the same, except that, from dell's site they are going to have some kind of monitoring software for their servers, which we can install it later.
    Thanks

    Hello.

    "Dell customization of the ISO image for ESXi 4.x is minimal and primarily focused on modifying the URLs to redirect support from VMware to Dell." - from http://goo.gl/6pwAe

    Since you don't really get anything worthwhile, I tend to use the ISOs from VMware and skip the Dell ones.

    Good Luck!

    Try both and see if the customized bring anything of value to the table. At most it will add more hardware monitoring components to the mix. But, I believe, you can add them later. So, the call is yours.
