Booting from EVA 5000 to IBM pSeries servers

Hello,

Did anybody managed to boot an IBM pSeries / AIX 5.2 server from an EVA5000 box connected via SAN switches ?

If yes, which HBAs were used ?

Many thanks in advance for any tip.

Hi,
My documentation says there is no boot support for AIX on the EVA 5000 (only for Windows, Tru64 Unix and OpenVMS). I am not sure if this means that booting is not possible or only that it is not supported (but may work as unsupported).

Our IBM boxes all have internal boot drives, and put the rest of the system on the SAN. I think that this is because the securepath multi-pathing software is an added layer, and not an integral part of the firmware.
