iSCSI hardware initiator ... when?

When will HP provide an iSCSI HBA initiator? I know there is a software initiator available for HP-UX 11.11, but one cannot boot from iSCSI storage with a hardware-based initiator. When can we expect those?

Re: iSCSI hardware initiator ... when?

gee, this question sounds familiar :)

I suspect the answer in comp.sys.hp.hpux would apply here as well :)

Mark,

HP has been thinking about an iSCSI HBA and is investigating this area, but there is currently no plan to release one.

Do you already have iSCSI? If you do, what storage devices are you connecting to?

Rick:

comp.sys.hp.hpux?? Nah, those guys don't know iSCSI from IHOP. :) :)

Marie:

We do not have any iSCSI attached storage at the moment, but are planning to transition to either iSCSI or FC storage in the near future. Two vendors we have looked at are IBM and Network Appliance.

Hey, don't go knocking iHop - my daughter loves IHop :)

What is your definition of "near future" and just what are you hoping to gain from iSCSI?

Re: iSCSI hardware initiator ... when?

Mark,

Did you get the answer for your question on iSCSI?

I'm looking for any iSCSI adapter that HP has for iscsi boot? NC370T has broadcom's 5706 silicon which supports this. But I'm not sure how to set up iscsi boot. Does anyone have instructions on how to set this up?

Thanks,
Puru

Mark,

Sorry for delay, but I finally got confirmation that iscsi boot is not supported yet with NC370T. No date provided at this time,
