|Sun Fire X2270 M2 Server Installation Guide for Linux Operating Systems|
The ILOM provides a method of installing an operating system remotely, using either a CD or DVD connected to the local machine, or an ISO image mounted on the local machine. The remote console allows you to use the keyboard, mouse, video, and storage of the local machine as if it were connected to the server where you are installing the operating system.
After you have configured the remote console session, you can boot from the distribution media image (either a CD/DVD or equivalent ISO file).
For additional information, refer to your ILOM documentation collection.
