Re: vm question

Hi,

create an ISO image of your CD/DVD and place it as "filename.iso" in /ISO.

Now

# hpvmmodify -P myvm0 -a dvd:scsi::file:/ISO/filename.iso

That's it. The image is loaded. To unload, go to the vMP and type EJ (eject), to load again, type IN (insert). If you have multiple images in the same directory, you will have the choice.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
