A3591B booting off of a XIOtech MAGNITUDE

I am trying to boot off of a fiber channel attached XIOtech MAGNITUDE array using HP-UX 11 with the PHKL_23939 patch installed using an A3591B card in a R class 9000 (R390).

The install to the fiber box goes well. When I try to boot off the fiber box, I receive the following:
WARN 80F9.
Cannot find ENTRY_TEST.

Failed to initialize.

ENTRY_INIT
Status = -7

WARN 80F5
Failed to initialize.

WARN A50F

Then the server searches for and finds the internal disk and boots off the internal disk.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Re: A3591B booting off of a XIOtech MAGNITUDE

A XIOtech is not a supported boot device. Boot devices have some special requirements... and it looks like the XIOtech does not support them.

It's unlikely that it'll work without a firmware patch from Seagate/XIOtech.

Good luck.
No matter where you go, there you are.
