Remote boot media enables you to boot the install over the network. You can start the installation from a redirected boot storage device or another networked system that exports an ISO image over the network using a PreBoot eXecution environment (PXE).
To install the OS from media sourced from a remote location using the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus application, perform these steps.
For DVD-ROM, insert the media into the built-in or external DVD-ROM drive on a remote system.
For DVD-ROM ISO image, ensure that the ISO image(s) are readily available on a network shared location or are mounted on the server service processor (SP).
For instructions on mounting an installation image onto the server SP, refer to the Oracle ILOM Administrator's Guide for Configuration and Maintenance Firmware Release 4.x at http://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs. Alternatively, refer to the More Details link on the Oracle ILOM Remote Control → Remote Device web interface page.
For instructions, see Selecting the Console Display.
The Storage Devices dialog box appears.
The Add Storage Device dialog box appears.
The Storage Devices screen appears and lists the ISO image.
The ISO image is mounted to the remote console and can be used to perform the OS installation.
