Re: bl460c boot from san

Hi,
Does Your OS version support boot from SAN ?
Does it support it via multiple paths (EVA8k has eight of them) ?

Are You using virtual connect or brocade switches in the blade enclosure ?

although it's made with IBM blades =)

bottomline root volumes are not supported over dm-multipath

Re: bl460c boot from san

It's a DOS boot disk. Mount it with virtual media. OR download new FW maintance CD. It will update your Qlogic too.
