rx7620 with Tachyan HP XL2 Fibre Channel SAN boot

I am not able to SAN boot from rx2620 which has a Tachyan PCI HBA (HP XL2 Fibre Channel Mass Storage Controller) connected to EVA after doing an ignite install of HPUX 11iv3.

EFI shell doesn't show these SAN disks. Some of the EFI output are given below.

Re: rx7620 with Tachyan HP XL2 Fibre Channel SAN boot

This is normal. You need to use the efiutil utility (IPF offline diags cd) to set the EFIScanLevel higher to force a SAN search.

Hope this helps!
