    Hi folks!
    I'm facing an issue to setup windows server 2012 r2 on IBM X3850 M2 with Brocade 825. Boot code is 3.2.5.0. After initial boot from CD wizards asks to load drivers for storage and when I use DUD version 3.2.5.0 for Windows Server 2012 R2 it does nothing, says can't seen any LUN. Storage is EVA4400. We had no problems with W2K8 R2 and W2K12, it works as expected. In-place upgrade finishes by BSOD after initial reboot during upgrade procedure. Any ideas why it doesn't work with W2K12R2 are welcome.

    Boot from SAN for Windows 2012 R2 is not supported.

     

    Additional FYI, Brocade HBA are not longer supported by Brocade, since was acquired by QLOGIC.
