Advanced ILO and INSERT_VIRTUAL_MEDIA question.

Dave had a customer question regarding iLO4 scripting capabilities:

 

************

 

My customer is  utilizing the HP iLO 4 Scripting Command line

 

RIBCL XML scripting language and specifically the INSERT_VIRTUAL_MEDIA.

 

With Blades I thought Virtual Media was included in Standard ILO.  Why would they need Advance?  They attempted without Advance ILO and it would not work.

So my question is do they require the Advance ILO  for Blades or is this a bug?

iLO has the concept of IRC Virtual Media and Scripted Virtual Media being distinct features.

Virtual Media (standard) comes with Blades

Scripted Virtual Media only comes with iLO Advanced

 

See the info on page 5 and 7 of the documentation.
