Boot a FC volume using IPXE
Hello, I have a FC volume(this volume has OS written onto it) created on the SAN and I've attached to a Server(Baremetal). Now i want to boot that volume using IPXE. I know that using sanhook we can boot ISCSI volume. From this "https://ipxe.org/sanuri" link i found that we can use fcp i.e fibre channel protocol and boot the FC volume.

When I tried it

#!ipxe

sanhook --driver 0x80 fcp:10:00:70:10:6F:76:FC:32:0001

I'm getting this error: "Could not open SAN device: Error 0x3f142083 (http://ipxe.org/3f142083)"

Any suggestions?

Probably identical thread and response on the mailinglist: http://lists.ipxe.org/pipermail/ipxe-dev...06387.html
Quote:iPXE has a Fibre Channel initiator, but the only supported transport
layer is Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). Is your FC volume attached
via FCoE?
