You can set up a SAN boot LUN to work in a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server environment that is using the FC protocol.
Before you begin
Verify that your system setup supports SAN boot LUNs. See the
NetApp Interoperability Matrix.
- Create a LUN on the storage system and map it to the host. This LUN will be the SAN boot LUN.
You should ensure the following:
- Enable the BIOS of the HBA port to which the SAN boot LUN is mapped.
For information about how to enable the HBA BIOS, see your HBA documentation.
- Install the operating system on the SAN boot LUN.
- Install the Host Utilities.
- Configure DM-Multipath.
