Unable to boot the system after mapping the LUNs from IBM SVC

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We needed to migrate our storage from old SAN to IBM SVC, but it was observed that once the SVC LUNs are mapped, the system could not boot and following errors are logged on console:

    kernel: [0000:37:00.2]:[qedf_scsi_done:1433]:0: 0:0:6:0: Completing sc_cmd=0000000033745baa result=0x00070000 op=0x00 lba=0x00000000, allowed=5 retries=0 refcount=3.

    Unmapping the IBM SVC LUNs allows the host to boot correctly.
