Using SmartStart CD via Virtual Media Applet

The main difference between this method and previous one is, here you are going to reboot server with SmartStart CD on your local machine (laptop/desktop)

To do this, you can use Virtual Media Applet from ILO interface and reboot machine with SmartStart CD inserted in your local laptop CD-ROM drive.

Few Steps needed are as follows :

  • Login through ILO interface. Go to Virtual Media -> Virtual Media Applet


  • Under section Virtual CD/DVD-ROM, select the available Local Media Drive and click “Connect” button. You will see the message that “Virtual CD/DVD-ROM: Connected”


  • Now reboot the Server. System should start using the local drive for boot.
  • Once server gets rebooted, rest of the steps are same as one illustrated in first method
