Notes and Restrictions on iSCSI Booting of FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS Disk Storage Systems as the iSCSI Targets


Notes and Restrictions on iSCSI Booting of FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS Disk Storage Systems as the iSCSI Targets
Notes
These notes apply to firmware version V10L50 on FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS Disk Storage Systems. This setting is unnecessary for V10L60 and later.
To perform iSCSI boot on FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS Disk Storage Systems as the iSCSI targets, apply XCP 2280 or later for the XCP firmware, and perform the following procedure in advance.
  1. Perform the following steps to change the OpenBoot PROM environment variable nvramrc.
    a. Execute nvedit, and write nvramrc as shown below.
{0} ok nvedit
0: set-random-tcp#
  1. b. Press the [Ctrl] + [C] keys to exit nvedit and return to the ok prompt.

    c. Execute nvstore to save the edited contents.
{0} ok nvstore
  1. d. Check whether nvramrc was written correctly.
{0} ok printenv nvramrc
nvramrc = set-random-tcp#
{0} ok
  1. Set the OpenBoot environment variable use-nvramrc? to true.
{0} ok setenv use-nvramrc? true
use-nvramrc? = true
  1. Execute the reset-all command to restart the OpenBoot PROM.
{0} ok reset-all
To return the above setting to its original state, perform the following steps.
  1. Delete the set contents from the OpenBoot PROM environment variable nvramrc.
    a. Execute nvedit, and delete "set-random-tcp#" from nvramrc.
{0} ok nvedit
0: 
  1. b. Press the [Ctrl] + [C] keys to exit nvedit and return to the ok prompt.

    c. Execute nvstore to save the edited contents.
{0} ok nvstore
  1. d. Check whether the nvramrc setting was deleted correctly.
{0} ok printenv nvramrc
nvramrc =
{0} ok
  1. Set the OpenBoot environment variable use-nvramrc? to false.
    If it was set to true before the above step 2 was performed, this step is unnecessary.
{0} ok setenv use-nvramrc? false
use-nvramrc? = false
{0} ok
  1. Execute the reset-all command to restart the OpenBoot PROM.
{0} ok reset-all
