Fibre Channel, Switches, and Booting?

» close window

The Question is:

Booting VMS from a fibre channel MA8000 box that's behind a cascated fibre
 channel switch.
We have two MA8000 fibre channel stroge boxes installed. Both at a different
 building, the connection between the two MA8000 is through FC switches which
 are in cascate. The VMS machine is only connected onto one of those FC
 swicthes. We want to use shado
wing to mirror the boot disk. Now my question is: is it possible to boot from
 the other box ? From the Alpha SRM concole I can see de volumes in the box
 that's directly connected to the FC switch as the VMS machine is connected to,
 but I can't see the vol
umes from the box connected to the other switch.

The Answer is :

  Please see the current Fibre Channel documentation available at the
  OpenVMS Website for details on configuring Fibre Channel on OpenVMS.
