Remote installing SBS Essentials using the HP Microserver Remote Access Card

Posted by o.sommer

Due to a nasty bug (or blondness of mine as Susan called it) I got to try the remote features of a newly installed Microserver N40L at a offsite customer.
I wanted to reinstall the SBS Essentials setup from point zero.

So I started with loging on to one of our datacenter Servers that has a outgoing bandwith of 100Mbit/s just to make sure outgoing bandwith would not be any issue.

I loged onto the remote Microsoervers Remote Access Card (RAC) and mounted the SBSe Media ISO that I downloaded to one of your datacenter servers with high outgoing bandwith priorly:

Booting into the remote DVD iso worked impressivly fast:

This bar ran through in about 2 Minutes:

From this point on I was able to install the SBSe setup as if the media would have been local to the Microserver.
