Executive Summary

In this whitepaper, the author discuss in detail the procedure to setup HS21XM blade boot from iSCSI SAN using the N series N5300 storage system in multipath environment. The solution offers high availability for a SAP business application. It is redundant in every possible path from the host to the boot LUN on N5300 storage. This paper was developed because there hasn't been another document that goes over the solution in enough detail for a System Administrator to setup from scratch. The solution is comprised of a BladeCenter H chassis with a NetApp N5300 Filer redundantly connected through two Cisco CAT switches at the core and Cisco switch modules in the BCH chassis at the edge.
