Dell Server iDRAC Remote File Share format

The iDRAC Remote File Share feature allows you to specify an ISO or IMG image file located on a network share and make it available to the managed server's operating system as a virtual drive by mounting it as a CD/DVD or Floppy using a Network File System (NFS) or Common Internet File System (CIFS).

The format of the CIFS shared image path is:
//<ipaddress or domain name>/<pathtoimage>

The format of the NFS shared image path is:
<ipadddress>:/<pathtoimage>

Note:If you are using NFS, ensure that you provide the exact <pathtoimage> including the image file extension as it is case sensitive.
