I am trying to boot the OVM Manager ISO on a Fire X4150 using the console redirection but all that comes up is "Grub" and allows no further interaction. I've tried downloading the ISO multiple times, using an older version of the OVM installation ISO, and upgraded the iLOM firmware to the latest and greatest. When I use the OVM Server ISO, it boots up normally and starts the installation process. The machine that I am running the remote console from and has the ISO image is in the same rack as the server where I would want to install OVM Manager.
Getting physical access to pop a DVD in the drive is limited so really trying to figure out a way I can do this remotely.
Any one else have this issue and knows of a workaround?
FYI, update the FIRWARE on your Sun Fire X4150s. I was on a project a couple weeks ago and we where unable to use the ILOM to mount ISO files. After 10 hours of FUN, we discovered that its was a BUG! Update each server to the latest FIRMWARE, i.e. download the FIRWARE, and update each node from its web portal.
Sun x86 is FUN!
