Abiquo recommends that you change the boot order by itself, without making any other disk configuration changes at the same time. Disk hot-reconfigure on ESXi only supports changes to the boot order as part of disk add or disk remove operations. Other changes made in the platform will not be implemented until the VM is powered off and reconfigured. Note that the platform will ignore Cloud-init ISO disks in the boot order.

To change the boot order:

  1. Go to Virtual datacenters → edit VM → Storage
  2. Click the pencil edit button beside the Boot order number
  3. Enter the new number in the Boot order where you want the disk to go and click ok.
  4. Repeat for other disks, as required 
  5. The platform will ensure that each disk has a unique number in the boot order and the boot order is contiguous (without gaps between disk numbers).
  6. Click Save to reconfigure the VM with the new order
