Install an Operating System
Posted by Phillip Nguyen on 29 January 2014 10:39 AM

You can install your own operating system of choice via console redirection which you can access in your IPMI.  

 

1.  Access your IPMI, we recommend beginning by powering the machine down.  This can be done by navigating to Remote Control > Power Control, and powering off the server.

2.  Launch the console redirection, and plug in the image of the operating system you wish to install.  This is done by navigating to Remote Control > Console Redirection > Launch Console.  

 

Once the KVM viewer loads, navigate to Virtual Media > Virtual Storage > CDROM&ISO > ISO File > Open Image, and select the image you want to use for the installation.

 

3. Power the server back on, and proceed with your installation.  Please feel free to contact us if you need any additional assistance or information.  We will be able to provide you with specific information regarding the network configuration, such as your IP address, gateway, DNS, etc.
