.DESCRIPTION
This function identifies how an ESXi host was booted up along with its boot
device (if applicable). This supports both local installation to Auto Deploy as
well as Boot from SAN.
.PARAMETER VMHostname
The name of an individual ESXi host managed by vCenter Server
.EXAMPLE
Get-ESXiBootDevice
.EXAMPLE
Get-ESXiBootDevice -VMHostname esxi-01
