You seek to re-image Symantec Endpoint Detection and Response (SEDR) or Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) appliance model 8880 or appliance model 8840 by mapping an ISO file as a network drive via iDRAC.
Before you begin:
- Mapping an iso file as a network drive within iDRAC 7 or later requires that the iDRAC already be configured with an IP address.
- Also, because this install method transmits the installation material across a network connection, slow networking conditions may slow the installation process as a whole.
- This procedure is not for the Virtual Edition of SEDR or ATP
- Log into the iDRAC user interface (UI).
- In the Virtual Console preview section, click Launch.
- If a dialog box warning of a self-signed certificate appears, click Run
- In the Virtual Console, on the Virtual Media tab, click Connect Virtual Media.
- On the Virtual Media tab, click Map CD/DVD. A new dialog box with the title "Virtual Media - Map CD/DVD" appears.
- In the "Virtual Media - Map CD/DVD" dialog box, click "Browse".
- Navigate to the ISO for Advanced Threat Protection: Network. Click on the ISO, then click the "Select" button.
- In the "Drive/Image file:" field, double-check the filename to make sure you're about to map the correct ISO.
- Click the "Map Device" button.
- Click the 'Next Boot' menu and choose 'Virtual CD/DVD/ISO' so the appliance automatically boots from this image
- On the Power tab, click "Reset system (warm boot)".
- Once the appliance gets past POST, you will see the Advanced Threat Protection menu, choose 'Install or upgrade an existing system' to perform an osrestore.
Note: If you do not see the Advanced Threat Protection menu you may need to restart the appliance and open the BIOS startup settings to make sure CD/DVD/ISO bootup is enabled.
- After completing the installation, on the Virtual Media tab, click ISONAME.ISO Mapped to CD/DVD , where ISONAME.ISO is the name of the iso you mapped.
- In the Unmap Drive Requested dialog box, click Yes.
- On the Virtual Media tab, click Disconnect Virtual Media.
