Boot from SAN

Hi Guys,

I have 2 dell hosts Dell PwoerEdge R530  with Esxi 6.5 U1 Installed with Boot from SAN (FC) option configured and working fine.

For compatibility with DR site I have to downgrade the hosts to ESXI 6.0 U3.

When I tried to Install the Older version 6.0 U3 . the ESXI Scan for the available storage but it displayed " none " in the local section and Locale HDD (mirror) in the Remote section .

the firmware of the host is more than required in the VMware compatibility Guide . Can any one Help

The installer image you're using may not have appropriate drivers for your FC HBA. Are you using the Dell customized ISO for 6U3?

Then you need to download it from Dell's site under the Drivers and Downloads section for your hardware.
