Well you don't "install" 3i with this process, you just deploy
it and run it. The config is premade, or made at first deploy then
extracted and pushed out, so its safe.

Should be fun, this will allow me to free a lun for vmfs instead of
the hypervisor and to make upgrades easy to go to and from with.
