iSCSI booting linux clients
Has anyone got any experience using iSCSI luns from a CDOT filer as linux
root
partitions and would like to share experience/best practice?

As background we have lots of Dell blades and it makes sense to us to put
cheap
SSDs in them as disposable scratch space and to network boot the root FS
from
our filers. We barely touch the root FS so accessing it over the network
doesn't
really hurt us and the usage is low enough that the impact on the filer
should be
negligible.
