Thread: After offline upgrade from SLES 11.4 to 12.3 I cannot boot

    After offline upgrade from SLES 11.4 to 12.3 I cannot boot

    I ran the offline upgrade from SLES 11.4 to 12.3 - that far it worked but now I have this very tiresome issue:

    It is a VM installed on XenServer 7.5 and I cannot boot the VM. XenServer aborts with

    Internal error: xenopsd internal error: VM = xxx; domid = 29; Bootloader.Bad_error [Errno 2] No such file or directory.

    Good, may be this is a XenServer issue but I want to assure it isn't SLES.

    BUT:
    I can start the VM when I start the VM in the Recovery Mode and there I select the first option Boot from Hard Disk.
    Isn't it strange?

    I have the feeling it cannot be that much but it should be solved because I cannot always start this VM this way.

    May be the problem is that the SLES 11.2 VM was originally created 4 years ago on a XS 6.2 with a SLES 11.2 template and now the template has a wrong entry regarding the boot loaded which changed due to the upgrade to SLES 12.3

    Solved:

    It was a XenServer problem. I had to unset the PV-bootloader-args VM parameter with this command:

    xe vm-param-set uuid=*** PV-bootloader-args=
