BL465c G1 Blades with Mezzanine NIC3

Hi there

We have BL465c G1 Blades with Mezzanine NIC3 + NIC4 and use RDP 3.5 for deploying.
Is it possible to enable PXE boot on NIC3 via scripting (conrep.exe )?
(only NIC1+2 are configurable in ROM-Based Setup)

At the Moment we have to enable it through iLO connection reboot the server and "Press F1 to modify network boot selection..." manually during the boot up.

thx for any help

Hi James

No, unfortunately not.
We have to
- connect every new Blade once through iLO
- enter the "Network Port Configuration Selection" Menu
- enable NIC3 for PXE.
I guess there is no way to enable it through BIOS (Rom based Setup) so we have to do it manually :-(

Yea... I don't think there is another way to deal with this.

Thanks.
