Unable to boot to ISO

Having issues with new M5 blades.  I've been able to mount and boot to an ISO on my M3's and M4's.  Not sure if something changed.

 

I KVM to the console, activate media and mount the ISO.  However When I boot up and hit f6 for boot menu, I do not get any option to boot to media like I'm used to.  

 

When I load the BIOS, i can see the options there in boot options, however I cannot change it there due to the service profile overwriting it.

Re: Unable to boot to ISO

Greetings.

Have you attempted via both HTML5 and Java vKVM interfaces?

Are your working M3/M4 blades in the same UCSM domain?  

 

Thanks,

Re: Unable to boot to ISO

I had this problem too, we are using UCS Central . If you are using UCS Central too, you have to change your Boot Policy in UCS Central .You need to add KVM DVD/CD boot and evaluate/save . Then reboot your Server hit F6 and choose DVD/CD boot --> search --> take your .iso file and let it boot from ;-) .

Maybe you have to change your Boot Policy in UCS Manager if you don´t use UCS Central .
