Full Version: Boot a FC volume using IPXE
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
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


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?

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?
