Description

Many baseboard management controllers (BMC) include a facility to attach an ISO file as an emulated CD-ROM drive, allowing a server to be booted remotely from virtual media. At least one model of BMC from Insyde Software has an incompletely implemented virtual CD-ROM device. The implementation is mostly in Javascript, running within the browser where the operator has mounted the ISO file, to which USB messages are tunneled to be handled by the emulation. Fortunately our scsa2usb quirks list is able to avoid sending the MODE SENSE to this emulated device.
