Can you give RAID configuration? Embeded or external RAID controller? If you configured RAID then you're not working with psychical disks anymore...you have VD on that RAID controller and that's where you're going to boot.

Can you upgrade to the most recent firmware for this UCS (1.4.7 if i remember well...)?

Hi Dhani,

Is this a c220 m3 or C22 M3?

What firmware are these server running?

You can disable the SCU and the othe other partitions on the flexflash.  This will prevent from booting of the SCU partition or other patition in the flexflash.

Steps when running firmware 1.4

Step 1 Log in to CIMC interface for the server, using the IP address of the server.

Step 2 Navigate through GUI tabs to Server > Inventory > Storage.

Step 3 Click FlexFlash-0 in the Storage Adapters list.

Step 4 Click on Configure Operational Profile in the Actions area.

The Operational Profile dialog opens.

Step 5 Uncheck the box for each VD that you want to disable , then click Save Changes.

if you servers are running firmware 1.5 there is a storage tab in the gui you will need to go there to will select the storage controller to disable the partitions.
