Redirecting an Image File From a Storage Device to the Host Server

Use Host Storage Device feature in Oracle ILOM to either: 1) mount a storage image from an NFS, SAMBA, or SSHFS server and redirect it as an attached host storage device or, 2) configure the service processor (SP) to make the Oracle Solaris Miniroot package that is installed on the SP available to the host on the managed server.

Note -  The Host Storage Device Miniroot mode is available only on SPARC M7, T7, and T8 series servers.

Note -  The SSHFS file redirection option is available for configuration as of Oracle ILOM 4.0.3.

An NFS, SAMBA, or SSHFS redirection configuration is helpful when you want to boot your server from a single file that is currently stored on a remote NFS, SAMBA, or SSHFS server. A Miniroot redirection configuration is useful for when you want to restore the Oracle Solaris Miniroot package from the Oracle ILOM SP.
