  • SAN boot lun 
  • Windows Host
  • Ontap 9

Answer

No, SAN drive(boot lun) would not be accessible, when the host is down for a crash dump.

  • When the crash dump is taken on windows host we boot through the SAN LUN.
  • When booting through the LUN, LUN path would go down, i.e  the Windows Host can not find the LUN.
  • Since existing paths to the lun are not accessible,  crash dump can not be saved on the boot lun.

Additional Information

Suggest to reach out to Microsoft for some alternate solution.
