I am using an IBM IMM.

I need to install from an ISO on a local drive, instead of putting a disk into the DVD player.

How can I do this.  I do not see any options to install from an ISO on a local drive

Hi again,

first of all, you need the IMM Premium feature to be able to remotely attach a disk image to a server.
The IMM Standard does not have this functionality!

Upgrading to IMM Premium is done by installing a Virtual Media Key, which you can purchase/order here:

If you do have IMM Premium:

- Log in to the IMM using a web browser from the PC where the ISO image is stored.
- Click "Remote Control"
- Click "Start ... in Single User Mode"
- Go to the "Virtual Media Seession" window
- Click "Add Image"
- Add your ISO image to the list of available drives
- Select this image and click "Mount Selected" (or check "Mapped" in older versions).

That should do the trick
