What is web boot and how do I use it?

Web boot allows the user to create minimal ISOs to boot the BMR products.
Boot mapping allows the target ISO to boot into a Windows or Linux recovery environment for any of the features enabled on the Cristie VA.

Web Boot functionality can be found at https://<va-ip-address>/#/webboot

This is done by creating a boot map that loads the relevant product data into an ISO when it is booted.

Web boot ISOs can be built with pre-defined IP addresses or DHCP.

When a Web Boot ISO is booted you will be notified in the Web Boot Events panel.
If you set the ISO to boot via DHCP you will see the ISO IP address noted in the events to allow you to create a boot map.
Rebooting the ISO will then boot using your new map.
