How to mount an ISO image to the server via out-of-band Console?

A step-by-step guide on how to mount an ISO image to the server using out-of-band Console (IP KVM).

Supermicro IPKVM:

From your client zone/portal find the IPKVM console button, log in and press on the remote control -> console redirection -> launch console: (See Figure 1.)
