Hi All,

I have a FC volume(which has OS written onto it) created on the SAN and I've attached to a Server(Bare metal).
Now I want to boot that volume using IPXE. I know that using "sanhook" we can boot ISCSI volume.
>From this "https://ipxe.org/sanuri" link I found that I can use "fcp" i.e. fibre channel protocol and boot the FC volume.

When I  tried below code, I'm getting this error: "Could not open SAN device: Error 0x3f142083 (http://ipxe.org/3f142083)"


sanhook --driver 0x80 fcp:10:00:70:10:6F:76:FC:32:0001

Any suggestions?
