Hello, I'm curious if anyone has had success with connecting virtual media from the command line from a Windows server (map to local ISO/connect to CIMC)? Basically I need to mount an ISO programatically, and CIMC/virtual media is outside of the UCS XML/API. If there's another way, i.e. upload ISO/mount via SMASH-CLP, I'm open to that as well.
I think you're specifically going to be challenged as the virtual media interface is tied to the Avocent underpinnings for KVM which has nothing to do with the API. I think you're better off leveraging PXE to do the jump start install.
We are planning to implement Auto OS deployment on these blades as we are keep on deploying OS very frequently. If we are able to do so, it will reduce manual intervention and overhead for these servers. we are able to get console over SOL but the real problem is to mount virtual media(ISO). For some reason we dont want to use PXE.
