we have setup iSCSI booting on a new B200 M3 blade that has a ViC 1240. When the blade boots up & goes through the iSCSI boot, the "first" iSCSI boot option ROM is successful, but the second one shows the "initialize error 1" error. when i look at the "iscsi_get_config " on that blade/adapter, we see the following message:
for the vNic that works i see
Prev State: ISCSI_TARGET_DISABLED
Target Error: ISCSI_TARGET_NO_ERROR
for the one that does not work i see
Prev State: ISCSI_TARGET_GET_SESSION_INFO
Target Error: ISCSI_TARGET_GET_SESSION_STAT_ERROR
i cannot seem to find any info on the above error. Anyone got any pointers/suggestions on what i should be looking out for would be appreciated? i have setup a number of UCS systems & used the setup process & have never run into this.
We are running UCS firmware 2.2.3e
I'm not a UCS expert by no means, but we installed a UCS with B200 blades and the Mezzanine adapters needed to be removed before they would come up and work.
Not sure if this is relevant, since this is not my expertise, but here is a link that discusses a similar issue.
Hope this helps...
Have a look at
initialize error 1 looks like some config issue on the service profile. Please verify if you have entered all the require values correctly in the service profile. Double check IP address, IQN etc. -
