EMC told me they support it but were trying to sway us away from it.
We have an unmanaged datacenter, so they felt replacing a failed server or HBA would add a layer of complexity for a level 1 tech to achieve.
Also, they mentioned something about wasting LUN's for swap files for the OS.
make any sense?

Works fine for me with HP SANs (the little MSA's) and EMC SANs.

Anyone have any pro or con for SAN booting win2k3 with Exchange 2k3?


I know its supported by MS but I'm not sure if we should go that route.


My manager is pushing for it.


We are about to purchase an EMC Clarion to put Exchange 2k3 on(which obviously i have no problem with) and SAN boot the OS(unsure about that).
