when using EMC symmetrix device for boot device (using boot from san)
do you know if there's a problem installing OS core on device that will be named other then /dev/sda ?

Re: installing RH on device other then /dev/sda

Hello Itai,

this should be no problem. How is the device named on which you wish to install?

Best regards,
Patrick

Re: installing RH on device other then /dev/sda

Red Hat does not recommends boot from SAN.

Please see:

Re: installing RH on device other then /dev/sda

i too say the same - RH does not support SAN booting.

By the way what is the error?
