3Par MPIO and SAN-Boot issue in Windows 2003 64-bit

For Windows Server 2003 64-bit servers that are configured for SAN Boot, the SAN Boot disk can crash if you disconnect the IB cable under a very specific condition. This problem has been seen:

-- Only when 64-bit Windows Server 2003 hosts are connected through 3Par MPIO software
-- Only when the SAN Boot vHBA is actively carrying reads and writes at the time the IB cable is disconnected
