Setup to run an .ISO from HP Intelligent Provisioning.

Last Modified: 2014-08-15
I have a firmware upgrade .ISO that needs to be run on a VMware 5.5 host that currently resides on the D: drive of our VCenter server.

Anyone know how I can mount the .ISO as a CD/DVD ROM on the problem host so that when I reboot the host it will run the .ISO?

Is there somewhere in the ILO4's Intelligent Provisioning where I can do this?
Watch Question

With the drive connected (if it's external) you need to mash the F11 key while booting to get the boot prompt, that'll allow you to choose to boot from a disk (usb or dvd)


I need to boot an ISO that resides on another server's drive. Is that possible, or do I need to move the .ISO to another location?
