HP-UX boot-from-SAN and also IP SAN (iSCSI) ??

I have read document of HP-UX boot-from-SAN.

http://docs.hp.com/en/7408/HPUXSANBootWP_final_v2_update.pdf

However, it seems that HP-UX can boot from SAN and only FC SAN, but not IP SAN (iSCSI).

Is it true that HP-UX is unable to boot from IP SAN ??

you are right, the only way to boot hpux from iscsi is when you use hp integrity VM.
A guest VM can boot from a backing store wich is a iscsi fs mounted by the host.
