Re: ILO 4 Scripted Media URL

You need a webserver hosting the iso image.  Apache is recommended

Re: ILO 4 Scripted Media URL

Oscar, thanks for your reply.

For other that encounter this, i found that i could use the Remote Console and add a local ISO or CD to boot from. It doesn't help for anyone that really does require Scripted Media URL.

Hi,

 

To use iso image please launch remote console, click on Virtual drive Menu and Select CD/DVD and then select Virtual Image.

 

for detailed step by step instruction please refer to HP Guided Troubleshooting

[broken link removed on 19/04/17 -mod]

 

Launch the guided troubleshooting >> go to setup and installation option >> select HP Integrated Lights Out Virtual Media >> select HP Integrated Lights Out 3 (iLO 3) Virtual Media >> select Using iLO 3 Virtual CD/DVD-ROM..... steps provided remains the same for iLo4

 

Hope this helps,

Re: ILO 4 Scripted Media URL

Hi,

 

Specific to your question

 

Scripted Media URL is the location of  the virtual media image file on an HTTP server. The image must be located on a web server on the same network as iLO.

example:

protocol://username:password@hostname:port/filename

 

Please refer page 46 of HP iLO 4 Scripting and Command Line Guide for more information.

Scripted Media URL is the location of  the virtual media image file on an HTTP server. The image must be located on a web server on the same network as iLO.


 


I read both documents and there's nothing to indicate that the server has to be on the same network -- and the facility would be fairly useless if that were the case.  It *is* claimed however that for some bizarre reason one has to be running on MS Windows (ie., time to set up a VM).

 

          To use iso image please launch remote console, click on Virtual drive Menu and

          Select CD/DVD and then select Virtual Image.

 

The feasibility of this drops considerably when the system and admin are on different sides of an ocean.

Re: ILO 4 Scripted Media URL

Correct, The URL for the .ISO doesn't have to be on the same subnet. The iLO and the system hosting the .ISO image just need to be able to communicate.

 

Windows is only a requirement if you want to use the features in the Integrated Remote Console application. You can SSH to iLO and connect the virtual media from the command line. This method is explained in the scritpting and command line guide listed above.

Re: ILO 4 Scripted Media URL

Unfortunately I can't get iLO to even attempt to retrieve the .ISO image.  "iLO experienced an error attempting to insert the media.  Checkt o ensure whether a valid URL was entered".  This is when I stuff a URL into the Connect CD/DVD-ROM -> Scripted Media URL box and click Insert Media.  httpd logs show that it isn't even trying.

Re: ILO 4 Scripted Media URL

Okay, I got past the above, got the URL into a form that ILO would accept, but I find no evidence that ilo is even trying to mount the thing -- httpd logs show no access attempts.

Re: ILO 4 Scripted Media URL

Please provide more information

 

What URL method wasn't working, what did you finally get iLO to accept. examples would be nice.

 

Are you attaching via the IRC application, or over a command line session?

 

Sorry to play 20 questions, but I generally do several installations via this method weekly and only have a failure if I fubar the location as the URL tends to be long for our configuration
