  • 1.  Connect and Disconnect a DVD Iso file in script

    Posted Aug 25, 2010 07:43 AM

    I have an automation process that installs a Linux RHEL 5.3 with many other comonents from a DVD ISO file I created .

    After the first part of installation I need to shutdown the machine , disconnect the DVD iso file and start the vm that now will boot from the Hard Drive and continue installation .

    All the process is working well except the disconnection of the iso file .

    I am using the "vmware-cmd" script on ESX4

    Any idea ?

    Regards

    Raz

    Hi Raz,

    You can try to use action "disconnectdevice" with vmware-cmd. Have a look a this thread for an example.

    Hope it helps.
