HP Ilo using virtual media

you can map cdrom images through your web browser, but this is cumbersome and slow.

You can also map cdrom images via http, using ssh , this is easier (for me) and faster.

ssh to your ILO and type

cd /map1/oemhp_vm/cddr/
set oemhp_image=http://192.168.1.100/myiso.iso
set oemhp_boot=connect
reset /system1


other options for oemhp_boot are never/once/always/connect/disconnect
use disconnect to allow you to map images via your browser once again
