Could Not Open SAN Device
I have the following ipxe config:

#!ipxe
goto startme
:retry
sleep 5
:startme
sanboot http://bla.com/vmware/6.5/iso/ESXi65u1.iso || goto retry


I am getting a Could not open SAN device. This is an ESXi iso located on an http server. Does anyone have any ideas or things I could check?


Thanks

RE: Could Not Open SAN Device
All errors in iPXE also gives an ipxe.org url, that url should provide information about what to try. Regardless please post that url here so that we can help you further.

Read the FAQ before posting.
Did you include relevant ipxe.org error urls?

That error url should have the message: "Target not currently operational", in which is not the same error message.

Have you read that page? especially "Additional notes"
In addition to that I would suggest checking the iSCSI server logs.

RE: Could Not Open SAN Device
Well, I just used the wrong path …
iqn.target:target instead of iqn.target
Took me one hour to figure this out …
