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.

  • name (str) -- The name of the volume on the CIMC device.
  • remote_share (str) -- The file share link that will be used to mount the share. This can be NFS, CIFS, or WWW. This
  • be the directory path and not the full path to the remote file. (must) --
  • remote_file (str) -- The name of the remote file to mount. It must reside within remote_share.
  • mount_type (str) -- The type of share to mount. Valid options are nfs, cifs, and www.
