HP Proliant DL360 G7 can't boot from San, as long as the local logic driver exist

I have a HP Proliant DL360 G7 Server,and assign a Lun(SAN) from Storage.The first boot sequence is san. The situations are below:

(1)When logic driver of local raid card exist, the server can't boot from san.

(2)If i remove all the disk from server to keep local raid configuration erased, the server can't boot from san.

(3)The only way to make the serve to boot from san is make the local raid configuration fail (remove 2 disks from raid 5 without hotspare)

I am already upgrade my firmware, and I have no clue to solve this  strange problem. Can anyone kindly help me? thanks

You need to modify both the Standard Boot Order and Boot Controller Order in RBSU. Make sure the SAN HBA is listed before the local disk controller

Hi,

 

What is the NIC/HBA that is used to boot from SAN?

What is the BIOS version of the server and HBA?

What is the Operating System installed on the local disk and on SAN?

 

Also for your information:
