Filesystem to use in HP Onboard Administrator
Just a quick discovery I thought I'd share.
I was curious, I wanted to make sure what filesystem I could use to mount an iso via HP's onboard administrator web console (a web gui to manage HP Proliant g7 chassis). I was curious, because usually these are tied to fat32, and the iso I have is a dvd iso (read=larger than 4gb), I wanted to make sure I woudn't run into a fat32 file size limitation.
I scoured through hp's documentation in hopes of finding an answer. The only thing I could find that remotely answered my question was to use their proprietary HP USB windows key utility. (This requires a HP firmware upgrade dvd, which I don't have.)
I discovered HP's Onboard Administrator will read ext3 filesystem without a hitch. It mounted the iso off of my 16gb-ext3 formated usb drive just fine.
