This chapter describes the process for manually preparing the HyperFlex servers, before moving to the installation steps. This customized installation method can be used during the following scenarios:
Adding a compute-only node to the HyperFlex cluster.
Redeploying your Cisco HyperFlex System.
The tasks to perform are essentially the same as for deploying pre-configured HyperFlex Systems. The new task specific to non pre-configured systems is, installing VMware ESXi.
