The answer should be in your multipath.conf on dom0, though I don't know what facilities XCP provides for SAN booting and such (I run CentOS 5 and it works fine there). According to this guy:


You should be set up as RDAC, which is pretty common on these OEM'd arrays. Get it all working properly prio-wise, no errors or trespasses from the array's point of view, etc., in dom0 before worrying about the boot environment.

Has anyone worked with XCP and a RDAC SAN before? What distro is XCP based on?
