Onboard Administrator DVD functionality

Has anyone been able to use the supposdedly DVD drive for OA c7000? Originally the feature was to be turned on when the firmware was upgraded to v2.04, this didn't work and have since then upgraded to the newest firmware and still not working, if anyone has gotten this to work please drop me a line. Thank You, Jessie Richardson

Hi Jessie, This feature has been supported since version 2.01 of the OA firmware. Without any details, it's hard to know what might be going wrong for you. Before version 2.10, the DVD had to be plugged into OA slot 1 (on the left as viewed from the back) and OA1 had to be the primary OA. With 2.10, the DVD has to be plugged into the primary OA (either left or right). I suggest reviewing pages 127 through 140 of the OA User Guide located at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00705292/c00705292.pdf If this doesn't help, please provide us with more details of your configuration. Thanks, John
