BL460 Gen8 Boot from iSCSI with a 6120XG interconnect

Mathieu had an iSCSI boot question:




Does boot from iSCSI is supported on BL460 Gen8 with a 554FLB FlexibleLOM and without VC ?

I’m not able to find a way to access the Emulex BIOS configuration to boot from iSCSI. Only PXE bios option is displayed during the boot…




After Diane provided some info Mathieu responded:




Sorry for this question/answer feed… reading more carefully the doc it works fine…

Thank you Diane for the web link :


Because we can see the 2+2 NIC provided by the BE3 in the BIOS : By activating “network boot” on correct ports (3&4) which are dedicated for iSCSI/FCOE. This allow iSCSI BFS configuration utility access.




Any other questions?
