Hi fellow experts!
After a bit of confirmation on something from anyone who has tried it:
Using a iSCSI HBA with INT 13 (Boot from SAN) such as [10Gb 534FLR-SFP+] I know the OS be booted from this HBA, but can another iSCSI target be mounted too (data drives) using the same HBA that was booted from?
Probably using HP hardware in this case, but should be vendor agnostic in theory.
1. Boot Server
2. iSCSI HBA mounts the OS as C: from SAN (1st target in bios)
3. OS Boots
4. Windows iSCSI initiator uses the same HBA to mount D: from SAN
The initiator IP will remain the same.
I am hoping this will be just another session on the HBA, but want to confirm if the HBA will be reusable/sharable after initial ‘bios’ initiation.
Anyone tried this and can confirm it does/doesn't work?
