esxi on dl380 g4

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was browsing random 380 forums the other day, and found a few people that had successfully installed esxi 4.1 to a hp dl380 g4. So i was thinking it would make a great box for a pfsense + untangled super router. Has any one here, had any esxi experience with these units? any thoughts, input or considerations of the caveats i might run into here?

I've never had any experience with ESX on that platform but VMWare says it is compatible with at least ESX 3.5. I wouldn't be surprised if you could install 4.1 and 5.1.
