Thread: Patched - Server Will Not Boot

    Patched - Server Will Not Boot

    I have a new install of SLES 12 sp3 on a Lenovo SR650 server.

    I installed from a USB device.

    Configured to boot UEFI.

    Changed back to boot from HD after install.

    I ran the online updates after the server was installed.

    Now the server will not boot. The last entries when it hangs:

    OK - Open SSH daemon
    OK - Postfix
    OK - Command Scheduler
    OK - Reached target multi-user system
    OK - Reached target graphical user interface
    OK - Started update UTMP about system run level changes

    When I patched the server I selected all recommended patches. As I always do.

    There were several dependencies. I mean a whole lot of dependencies. I selected the "Keep" option.

    Any ideas as to what may have caused this.

    Thank you!

    I have this in the boot order and have moved it to the bottom with boot to HD at the top. SLES-Secure Boot.

    Could this be the issue..

    Hi
    It could be if it's loading an unsigned kernel module? Else at that point it's past anything UEFI related as it's loaded initrd etc. Sounds like a graphics issue (Not running nvidia/proprietary driver)? If you press ctrl+alt+F1 do you get a login prompt, can you ping and/or ssh onto the system?

    I re-installed and selected to not use secure password. First time with UEFI so I guess that is procedure.

    I'll patch tomorrow and still not sure what to select when I get all of the dependency popups.

    Hi
    You can have both present if you like, on reboot and a new signed kernel requires a screen and keyboard to enroll the new key, sounds like it might be best to not use secure boot?

    I will not use secure boot for now.

    Any idea if I should replace, keep or remove the dependencies when patching. I have never seen so many dependencies in my entire SUSE life

    Thank you for your assistance!!

    Hi
    Well it has been out for awhile now, so I imagine there is some catchup to do? Perhaps post a list?

    On my re-install of this server I did not have any dependencies when patching.

    All is well now.

    Thank you!!
