All the DRAC/iLO/BMC systems I play with these days mount a remote
present it as optical media. The feature is basically only used for
emergencies where regular networking won't do, like when I want the normal
network environment for the process and don't want to bother the network
folks to change routing and vlans in realtime.
Definitely an edge case, but I'm fairly sure that an image that
from physical optical media also will not boot this way. It would be more
important for RHEL users than Fedora users, I assume.
Thanks for clarification. Just to be absolutely clear, this proposal doesn't affect
RHEL release process in any way. This would be Fedora-only change. And it is a good remark
that users of such systems are probably more likely to be installing RHEL/CentOS than
Fedora due to a longer support period.
