Support for booting from SAN

I have a storage array EVA P6500 Dual Controller FC and 1 GB iSCSI (AJ939A) in fabric mode with two switches FC brocade 300 (SAN Switch HP 8/24) with several servers connected to these switches using FC HBAs. The connections is 8 Gb/s
I want to install a linux server with their SO in the SAN (boot from SAN)

My question is:
Is it possible booting from SAN with the array and the switches listed above ?

Please, provide me any clues according your experience.

Thanks in advance,

Re: Support for booting from SAN

You need to go into the FC HBA BIOS of the server and adjust the boot settings.

Hope this helps!
