Launching virtual media using virtual console

Before you launch Virtual Media through the Virtual Console, make sure that:
  • Virtual Console is enabled.
  • System is configured to not hide empty drives — In Windows Explorer, navigate to Folder Options, clear the Hide empty drives in the Computer folder option, and click OK.

To access Virtual Media using Virtual Console:

  1. In the iDRAC web interface, go to Overview > Server > Virtual Console.
    The Virtual Console page is displayed.
  2. Click Launch Virtual Console.
    The Virtual Console Viewer is launched.
    NOTE: On Linux, Java is the default plug-in type for accessing the Virtual Console. On Windows, open the .jnlp file to launch the Virtual Console using Java.
  3. Click Virtual Media > Connect Virtual Media.
    The Virtual Media session is established and the Virtual Media menu displays the list of devices available for mapping.
    NOTE: The Virtual Console Viewer window must remain active while you access the Virtual Media.
