In this video, we'll show you how to use the Custom Data feature of Equinix Metal to customize an ESXi instances configuration at deployment time. After some background on how helpful this GitHub repo is with formatting the JSON content, we dive into how to apply it to a new metal deployment.

In our example, we deploy an On-Demand System in the Dallas Metro using a VMware VCF ESXi 7.0 operating system. Here is a link to the GitHub repo with documentation and an example of properly formatted custom data JSON content that you can use as a guide for your own deployments.
