This procedure describes how to boot the Oracle Solaris 11.2 operating system (OS) installation from local or remote media. It assumes that you are booting the installation media from one of the following sources:
Oracle Solaris 11.2 (with SRU5, or later, required) DVD (internal or external DVD)
Oracle Solaris 11.2 (with SRU5, or later, required) ISO DVD image (network repository)
For Distribution DVD, insert the Oracle Solaris 11.2 (with SRU5, or later, required) DVD into the local or remote DVD drive.
For ISO image, ensure that the Oracle Solaris 11.2 (with SRU5, or later, required) ISO image is available and that the ISO image has been mounted in the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus application using the KVMS menu.
For additional information about how to set up the install media, see Selecting the Boot Media Option.
For example, do one of the following:
From the local server, press the Power button (approximately 1 second) on the front panel of the server to turn the server off, then press the Power button again to power on the server.
From the Oracle ILOM web interface, click Host Management → Power Control, select Reset from the Select Action list box, then click Save.
From the Oracle ILOM CLI, type: reset /System
