Boot from SAN with Broadcom 5708s

  • Is it possible to do a boot from SAN with the OB NICs? I see the sourcebook says yes and so does the website but i've heard conflicting information and it wasn't mentioned in any of the internal trainings we've had.

    Yes...and No. :)

    iSCSI HBA functionality is possible on the 5708s, but the functionality is only supported for non-EqualLogic solutions. The plan is that will not support the 5708 iSCSI functionality until the next release of the EqualLogic Host Integration Kit.
