[ironic] Node wont boot from virtual media

I've been trying to get virtual media booting to work on a ProLiant DL380
Gen10 but not having any luck. Over redfish Ironic attaches the media, sets
the Next boot option to 'cd' and then restarts the node. But it continues
to boot from the HD as if the vmedia is being ignored. I'm wondering if
anybody has seen anything similar, I'm thinking perhaps I don't have a
bios setting configured that I need?

I have the same problem if I set the One time boot on the iLo dashboard.

System ROM U30 v2.40 (10/26/2020)
iLO Firmware Version 2.33 Dec 09 2020

On another ProLiant DL380 Gen10 with the same ROM and iLo version where
this works. Some of the hardware is different, in particular the one that works
has a "HPE Smart Array P408i-a SR Gen10 " but the one that doesn't has a
"HPE Smart Array E208i-a SR Gen10" could this be the relevant difference?

any ideas would be great,
