Hi, i'm working with vRealize automation 7.01,
i was wondering if there is a simple way to allow the ability to mount an iso to a virtual machine
the custom properties pdf of 7.01 only refer to mounting an iso automatically from a specific share, i'm interested in the ability to freely mount
an iso from any share, just like the standard VMRC option when the cdrom drive is set to client device.
I did this by providing a VMRC link that users can use to open up a console session using the stand alone VMRC application. This gives them the ability to mount an ISO from their machine.
Thanks for the quick response, i will elaborate my question
i have the ability to provide the clients with VMRC, in VRA 7.01 there is even an aciton for this
the problem is that even with VMRC , i don't have the option to mount an ISO
it seems like there is a permission problem
The built in action uses the web VMRC. The package i provided uses the stand alone installed VMRC. That package includes the capabilities to mount local ISOs to the VM.
We originally went down the road of having a shared NFS datastore for ISOs and presenting a dropdown list of the available ISOs and mount the selected on but it was a real PITA. So we ended up using the VMRC for that.
