Al server administrators have the common problem of getting media attached to a server (some times multiple). Do you copy it to the server OS or burn it? This becomes a larger problem when you are not in the same physical location of the server, unless you have really, really long arms.
While having a task of updating 65 HP c7000 chassis and the associated 1000 server blades to the latest HP Proliant Support Pack (SPP), I had a big issue with this since I am not located at that data center. After some digging around I found some references in the iLO scripting guide to mounting media. After a lot of trial and error I finally got it to work!
Since this is part one I will walk you thru the steps of setting up a repository to store the iLO xml files and iso images. These steps are done with IIS7 and Windows 2008
