Set Up the Boot Media for Remote Installation

  1. On a remote system with network access to the server network management port (NET MGT), download the Oracle VM Server installer ISO image from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud web site at https://edelivery.oracle.com/oraclevm.

    Alternatively, you can do either of the following:

    • Burn the installation image to a CD or DVD, and then insert the installation media into a DVD drive attached to the remote system.
    • Download the installation image to another location on the network, and then redirect the image to the server service processor using NFS or Samba protocol.

      For instructions on redirecting the ISO image from another location on the network, refer to the Oracle ILOM Remote Device section in the Oracle ILOM Administrator's Guide for Configuration and Maintenance, or to the More Details link in the Oracle ILOM Remote Control → Host Storage Device web interface page.

  2. Establish a web-based client connection to the server Oracle ILOM SP and launch the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus on the remote system.

    For instructions, see Set Up the Remote Console.

  3. In the remote console, do the following:
    1. Click KVMS to display the KVMS menu.
    2. Click Storage.

      The Storage Devices dialog box appears.

    3. In the Storage Devices dialog box, click Add.

      The Add Storage Devices dialog box appears.

    4. Browse to the ISO image, select it, and then click Select.

      The Storage Devices screen appears and lists the ISO image.

    5. Select the ISO image, and then click Connect.

      The ISO image is mounted to the remote console and can be used to perform the OS installation.
