How to copy Files to an ODA which is not available via network - by using the network

Sounds a little weird, I know - but works ... *lol*

Problem was: 

The all new ODA has installed old firmware for the SPF28 interfaces. This makes it impossible to connect the system to the network. To upgrade the interfaces You need to have the firmware files on the ODA ... but how can I copy the firmware to the ODA without a network connect?

Solution:

First of all: create an ISO File from the Files You want to have in a virtual cd. With a mac, this is quite easy to do: start disk utility, then 'File / New Image / Image from Folder' and follow the instructions. Disk Utility will create a dmg file which hast to be reamed to iso. That's it, basically.

Next steps:

Open a browser window an connect to the ILOM (https://<ilom's hostname or ip>
Login by using ILOM's root account














Launch console


Open KVMS/Storage 





























Add Storage - choose the iso you'd created and klick 'Connect'




Next, in a terminal session, start the console application (start /HOST/console), and mount the cdrom: 

mkdir /media/cdrom
mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom

copy the files to whereever You want on the ODA's file system :-)
