There are many great new features that have been rolled into the CIMC 1.5 release for Standalone C-Series Servers. I presented a session at Cisco Live outlining many of these new features, but also wanted to take a few minutes to share more details and samples that I was not able to share in this session.
CIMC Mounted vMedia will allow customers to mount media from a remote file location and is available through all three CIMC interfaces (XML API, CLI and also WebUI). This feature supports multiple share types including NFS, CIFS, and WWW shares.
Some of the advantages of CIMC Mounted vMedia include:
Communication between mounted media and target stays local (inside datacenter)
Media mounts can be scripted/automated
No vKVM requirements for media connection
Multiple share types supported
Connections supported through all CIMC interfaces
Note: CIMC Mounted vMedia is enabled through BIOS configuration.
Getting started with CIMC Mounted vMedia is easy! Here are some samples on how to use this feature…
In the WebUI, CIMC Mounted vMedia (also referred to as Network Mounted vMedia) is located in the Server Tab under the Remote Presence --> Virtual Media option. Click on the ‘Add New Mapping’ button and provide mount details on the menu referenced above.
