comment Puppet: How to set line order within a file?
I understand that you're trying to load balance, but have you considered the rotate option in resolv.conf as well?

More detail. Block what from what and from whom?

I can't tell you what your application and server will do in this situation.

No, I don't have any additional recommendations.

Sounds like a controller failure. Because FreeBSD was in place (or FreeNAS), I'm thinking there were no alerts of anything leading up to this (because the OS isn't supported). If you only had one cable connected to the MSA 70 enclosure, versus two for dual-pathing, then yes... this could destroy your array.

And what is the result? What are you currently seeing? There should have been a variety of POST messages on the system, based on what you've described.

This is a case where you should just look at the VMware ESXi product page.

If one cable, that means you have a potential controller/backplane problem. Did you try the cable in the other P800 ports?

How are you running the installation? Are you using a USB key? Network install? CD?

@NXTVoipguy So if you were using FreeNAS on this setup, were you presenting a single logical drive to the FreeNAS/ZFS, or did you have a series of RAID-0 arrays? The HP Smart Array controllers aren't really equipped to run ZFS where you expose raw disks to the OS. Can you please clarify this?

For a single host, you end up doing it manually unless your vCenter is living somewhere else.
