mount the physical media tray on sever and mount remote device on another server in the same time in the same blade chassis

Dears,

Kindly i need explanation, if we i mount remote media or image on one of the blade servers, mount another remote media or image on another blade server and use the physical media tray on another blade server in the same time. so i could work parallel on more than one server in the same time.

thanks in advance
Ayman Mahmoud

You should be able to mount remote media or images on different blades.

But if you are using phyiscal media in the cdrom, you can only use it on one blade at a time.

If Windows is installed on the blades, you could use magiciso to mount the .iso to a drive letter on each server.  You can use magiciso to create .iso files, too, but I believe you have to license it to create files that are over 100 mb or something like that.

I would recommend the use of DAEMON Tools Lite

An advanced application for Microsoft Windows which provides one of the best optical media emulation in the industry. DAEMON Tools enables you to convert your physical CD/DVD discs into "virtual discs" so called "images". It also emulated up to 4 virtual CD/DVD drives, so you can mount (insert) and unmount (eject) images.

http://www.daemon-tools.cc/eng/downloads

Download and install it on the blade servers, and then mount the iso images.

The blade center management app only has a one:one relationship with the blades.  Just like if you were physically trying to mount a cdrom drive to multiple systems, only one system can control the drive at a time since a cdrom disc is actually a linear device (one long concentric circle of data).  CDROM libraries used to be fairly common devices, but the need for them has dwindled since technology has evolved.  Most people extract out the contents to a share or put the raw .iso's up on one, then access it from the client.
