SuSE fails to boot from qLogic Fibre channel card - "No root device found"
We have a SuSE/SLES 9 server that boots from a fibre channel card, using volumes from a NetApp filer.
We previously had the server booting from the LUNs on the filer, but after some tinkering around with the fibre channel BIOS, we have the situation where the LUNS seem to be mounted, the OS boots, starts to initialise everything but then stalls, saying:
"Searching for /dev/sdb2/ ....
#long list of device nodes (tty's,pty's, etc)..........
No Root Device found, exiting to /bin/sh
We have tried loads of combinations of settings in the BIOS and fibre channel BIOS without any success or any idea what may have caused the error.
Can anyone help or at least shed some light on why this may have happened?
