iSCSI Boot with ESX 3.5 and HP Blades

iSCSI Boot with ESX 3.5 and HP Blades

Hi, Just need to confirm that there is no solution currently on VMware HCL from HP to allow for iSCSI boot on HP Blades? ie, embedded Multifunction NIC's not supported (Just with TOE Chimney Driver in Windows), no Mezz card offerings, etc. It seems as if the only Boot from iSCSI HBA supported (ESX requires HW iSCSI for boot) is QLogic HBA's. So, because of this we may be out of luck since there are no QLogic iSCSI options for c-Class. Would like to hear from anyone that has info or experience around this, thank you!
