How to export diagnostic log from SmartStart CD

Did you face similar problem? HP ask you provide hardware diagnostic log of SmartStart CD, you maintain the server remotely, and nobody available locally? How can you export the log from SmartStart?

Previously I used to map a local USB device in iLO and then export, but how about if the network performance is low between you and server locations? Most people may access iLO in a local server, so how can you map your local USB device into a iLO of remote server?

You can use UltraISO make a floppy image file and mount it in iLO as virtual floppy.

Sorry, I don’t have a English version.

File -> New -> Floppy Image

Click OK by default setting.

File -> Save As

Enter file name, a ima file will be generated.

You can also rename it to .img file directly.

After export logs to the virtual floppy, just open the file again in UltraISO, and Extract logs.
