(iSCSI) SAN boot configuration for iSCSI hardware, software initiators

When you set up a SAN boot device, you use a SAN-attached disk, such as a LUN, as a root device for a host. A SAN boot LUN can be implemented either by an iSCSI HBA or a network interface card (NIC) and software iSCSI stack.

Note: Not all operating systems supported by the Host Utilities work with iSCSI SAN boot LUNs. For example, Oracle VM does not support creating a SAN boot LUN that uses software iSCSI.
