We are purchasing Cisco USC B200's and Cisco USC B440's. I need to attach a remote image (.iso) file via commandline (for full automation of the OS Build). I cannot seem to figure out how to do this without using the gui tool.
Does anyone know how to connect a .iso image over the network via commandline (ssh is preferred) to a B series server?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you very much.
You can't use vMedia remotely via external script. What you can do to automate your installation is use a PXE server which will boot an image over the network and perform your installation. That's what most folks do short of using a fully blown orchestration/deployment system such as UCS Director.
I completely forgot some of the most important information. We are not allowed to use PXE or DHCP in our data centers (ouch !!)
I know zero about UCS Director, can I use it to connect an .iso ?
With our HP and Dell servers I inject the IP address information into the .iso file then use ssh to the server to mount the .iso file (WinPE which reads the injected IP information). So if I can mount the .iso via command line much like I can with DRAC or ILO I would be home free.
