VMware custom OS X installer script adds support for VMware ESXi
I’ve updated the create_vmware_osx_install_dmg.sh script that I had previously posted about here. It now includes the ability to create an .iso file, which can be used with VMware ESXi servers running on Apple hardware. See below the jump for the details.
When running the script, the user will now be asked if they want an ISO disk image for use with VMware ESXi.
If the user selects Yes, both a .dmg and an .iso file will be created and stored in the output directory.
If the user selects No, a “— ISO disk image will not be created. Proceeding..” message will be displayed and a .dmg file will be created and stored in the output directory.
The virtual drives created by VMware ESXi for OS X VMs are not automatically formatted, so support for System Image Utility‘s AutoPartition.app has been included. AutoPartition.app runs before the installation of OS X to make sure the boot drive is formatted and named correctly for the automated installation.
