I’m working on a new Blade/SAN/Hyper-V Cluster deployment at the moment that’s taking up all of my time – I barely read email last week! As such, I’m missing lots of what is happening, e.g. the RTM of System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2 and the fact that you can’t download full code (only the eval) at the moment. I’m also busy with pre-sales and marketing stuff.
I’ve been struggling with getting diskless HP BL460C’s booting from an EVA SAN using Emulex HBA’s. I’ve got a solution for getting their onboard NC373i NIC’s working with a W2008 boot image (boot.wim) using the drivers found in the download for the HP Network Configuration Utility. I hope to document the lot pretty soon, as well as getting a Core based Hyper-V cluster up and running. It could be a few weeks before I get back in the swing of things.
