I have tough time and spent last 8 days on this issue. We have a IBM Bladecenter H, with HS23 type 7875 installed. Goal is to deploy a operating system to boot from SAN configuration.
We have QLogic 8Gb Fibre Channel Expansion Card (CIOv) QMI2582 8GB.
Asked stroage team to allocate the LUN to single port as that is what mentioned in documentation.
Bios and FAST!Utl can scan the fiber LUN. It shows there. We are using the IBM Customized ESXi 5.1 image, but when it boots from image, it is not able to detect the SAN storage. Cannot proceed with installing the OS.
Attaching the BIOS setting and the issue faced. Any IBM techie, please help... I will buy you a dinner.. for sure... :)
