Bug Type ONTAP DSM
Description
 If a Windows Server host is running Data ONTAP DSM 3.5, long boot times may be observed.
 The boot time will vary based on the number of mapped LUNs and paths per mapped LUN.
 Boot times will be approximately 3 seconds per path, per LUN.
Workaround
 Reduce the number of mapped devices during Windows Server OS boot. You can do this
 several ways, which includes disabling the initiator ports before reboot or taking the
 mapped LUNs offline before the system startup.
