- A system crash may result if you bring down
a network adapter that is iSCSI-boot enabled. The Windows Server
2003 SP2 operating system prevents you from disabling iSCSI-booted
- File system access lapses (due to unplugging
the cable) for time critical "keep alive" processes (svchost) may
- Network adapter property changes (for
example, Link Speed) can cause unrecoverable configuration changes,
which may prevent booting.
- iSCSI target configuration changes (for
example, Adapter Name) causes boot failure if you do not change the
iSCSI boot configuration as well.
- Adapter failover during the software
installation or the boot phase is not possible.
- Discovery protocols, such as Internet
Storage Name Service, and Service Location Protocol are not
supported during iSCSI boot installs.
