SANboot issue dcrack1

Hello guys,

 

I'm having an issue with dcrack1, i cant get the server ESXi to boot.

I have set up the serviceprofile according to the INE labguide, the server is named ESXi and the vHBA im using is fc1 (can't use fc0, because the MDS1 don't work right now)

The server has bee assigned the WWPN: 20:bb:00:25:b5:c1:00:01

the storagesystem has the WWPN: 20:bb:00:25:b5:c1:00:01

The following is what i see in the working MDS:

MDS2(config)# sh zoneset active
zoneset name VSAN102 vsan 102
  zone name ESXi-12-boot-datastore vsan 102
  * fcid 0x920102 [pwwn 20:bb:00:25:b5:c1:00:01] [ESXi1-fc1]
  * fcid 0x920000 [pwwn 21:01:00:1b:32:27:32:23] [SAN_ARRAY1_FabB_FC0-P2]
MDS2(config)#

As you can see both the server and disksystem are logged in to the SAN fabric.

 

On the server itself i get the following from KVM:

The vHBA sees the disk, but still no luck, because after this i get the following when the server actually tries to boot from the disk:

if anyone can think of anything that i can have missed, both on the UCS and the MDS i would really appreciate this.

 

I would also like someone from INE to check this as i've had similar issues with the following racks over the last couple of weeks:

  • dcrack 1
  • dcrack 2
  • dcrack 5

  • Unless I'm seeing things it looks like your server and your SP have the same WWPN. 

    Best,
