Entering Intelligent Provisioning on the HPE server you realize that you can only install from CD ROM. But you haven’t mounted the CD player on your server.
With your iso create a bootable usb using for example Rufus. Does not work!
Download the “USB Key Utility” from the HP site to create a bootable USB with HPE specifications. Does not work!
What to do ?
The solution is very simple but poorly documented.
From your computer, go to the ILO page of the HP server. To do this you need to connect the server’s ILO port (it is a particular ethernet port) to the network. Turning on the server, if a DHCP server is active in your network, when you turn on the machine you will see, at the bottom, the ip address assigned to ILO. If a DCHP server is not active you will have to put a static ip by going to the utilities (button F9).
On the case of your HPE server there is a sticker with the password to access the ILO. Connect from your computer with a web browser to the ILO IP. The user is “Administrator”. Log in.
In this example I am using ILO 5.
On the left click on “Remote Console”.
A page appears from which you can open server management consoles, using different technologies. I’m using HTML 5. After the console opens, you have a button with a circle at the top. You can select your iso file which will be mounted on the server CD / DVD.
At this point you can restart the machine. To do this, you can send the ALT + CTRL + DEL command via the Remote Console keyboard.
When you reboot the server your iso will be mounted on CD / DVD and you can start the installation via Intelligent Provisioning.
