Boot the
iSeries
system from a bootable USB flash drive

Before you boot the
F5®
system to the Maintenance OS (MOS), be sure that you have console access to the system, either through a console server or directly through a serial connection.
Once you boot to the MOS, you lose connection with the system over SSH on the management port.
You can use a bootable USB flash drive as the installation source to install or upgrade an
F5
system.
  1. Insert the flash drive into the USB port of the target system.
  2. Boot the target system.
    The device automatically boots to the MOS on the attached USB flash drive.
