BL890 i4 cannot boot to OS after creating the server profile

Hi guys,
I faced a new issue after upgrade the vc fc firmware.
The problem is:
I create a server profile, defined the network adapter and fc hba, assigned it to the bl890c blade. After waiting several minitues, I powered on the blade. Then I connect to the iLO and monitor the boot process in VFP.
when the server boot to the "vc_clp_dev" process, it didn't go forward, and after 30-40 minutes, the server is reset.
I didn't find any error in vcm, oa, and even the blade's event log.
The vc firmware is 4.20.
There are 2 vc flex-10 and 2 vc fc 8Gb 20 port modules.
How time flies~~~

Re: BL890 i4 cannot boot to OS after creating the server profile

Is the server reaching EFI shell ? 

There is an option to by pass the IO drivers, Core IO drivers during the boot by pressing Cntl C keys.

IO -   Mezz cards

Core IO  -   SAS & LOM

This way the suspect entity can be narrow down. 

- A profile reapply can be tried. 

- If still same issue, remove the SAN fabrics from the server profile and check if it can come up with only network. 

- Verify the SAN switch and the storage firmware is compatible with VC and Server IO controllers.
