Pinned topic Mount bootable iso on a blade server

‏2013-10-21T17:22:48Z |

I am trying to install a blade server in a 8852 H Chassis.  I am using the Advanced Management Module to mount the virtual cdrom one of the blades but the remote control feature does not work.  It brings up a window with 'Remote Disk" and 'Remote Console' but everything else is blank.  I am running the latest version of java.

Is there a way I can mount the virtual media cdrom in the bladecenter to a blade server?

    What level is the FW on the AMM?  Which browser are you using?

    It's picky.  There's no other way to do it in the BC-H.

       It looks like build  BPET23A  revision 35.  I have tried both IE and Chrome.  IE pops up the blank window and Chrome pops up nothing.

        23A?  It's currenlty on 64G.  Try updating first.  That level is ancient.

            One question, once the firmware update is complete, it asks you to restart MM.  It tells you that all network connections will be lost.  Does that literally mean that all network access of the blade servers will be lost or only the network connections of the management module?

              No.  Just the AMM.  Any blades that are powered on will remain functioning.  Any that are powered off will be rediscovered once the AMM comes back online.

                The update was complete and it said that it failed over to bay 2.  Then I looked and saw that one of the MM's was still listed at the old version and a message that the primary was running as a different code level than the standby.  So I rean the update again and now the primary is running at the old level and the standby is updated.  Do I need to do the update a third time?
