Introduction

iSCSI boot enables a server to boot its operating system from an iSCSI target machine located remotely over a network. This document provides details and tips on how to configure iSCSI boot. This document only covers the install part and not the post-install tasks (mpio, off-load). A service profile for iSCSI boot has some changes from a normal Service Profile. There is now an iSCSI vnic that needs to be created. Creating a Service Profile iSCSI boot must be done from the Expert Service Profile creation tool.

Following adapters support iSCSI boot:

  • Cisco VIC and VIC-1280 (iBFT only, no iSCSI offloads)
  • Broadcom 57711 M51KR (full offload, iSCSI HBA)

Following Operating System are supported for iSCSI boot:

  • ESXi 4.1U1
  • Windows 2008 R2 and R2SP1
  • RHEL 5.6, 6.0 and 6.1

Hi David,

 

Quick question; The document, specifies that service profile must be created from the Expert Service Profile creation tool. Does it mean that we cannot use Service Profile Templates if I have more that one blade to configure with iSCSI boot?

 

Thanks
