Boot from SAN

Hi Experts,

Can anybody share the latest document on Boot from SAN supported servers. I have downloaded a pdf from the following link, but it seems to be too old (2004).
http://www.docs.hp.com/en/7408/HPUXSANBootWP_final_v2_update.pdf

Can anybody help me to find the updated one.

Thanks
Bensi

Re: Boot from SAN

I need to know whether the following HBA cards support boot from SAN.

AD193AR - HP PCI-x 1p 4G FC 1000BT Rmkt Adapter
AB379AR - HP PCI-X 2.0 2 Po 4G Fibre Chan Rmkt HBA

Thanks

Re: Boot from SAN

Pls visit the SPOCK website, login and drill down to those HBA's you listed.

It depends on the OS, array type , HBA f/w etc etc if you want to have an answer on the above question.

The AB379A (QLA2462) does support boot from SAN but you need to look at the config you want to use it in to see if that particular one is supported or not.
