Supermicro IPMI not loading ISO from Windows Share
I want to install CentOS on a Supermicro server using its IPMI interface.
I set up a samba interface to share my CentOS mirror so I can mount it using the IPMI interface. I can load the share to my Windows desktop in my office so I know the share is working.
I used \\centos.unmeteredvps.net\CentOS for the location
with user name samba and centos for the password. I can browse
directories and even download files.
I logged into the Web interface for the IPMI card on the server.
I then went to Virtual Media > CD-ROM Image on the web interface.
I filled in the form with the info to load the ISO file:
Do you have a DNS resolver IP setup in the network settings of the IPMI? By default it cannot resolve host names.
