I have a few servers SLES11 and SLES10 that whenever I have a kernel upgrade the menu.lst file is not updated. A mix of vmware servers and stand alone.
The update does not edit the file with the new kernel and it also changes (hd0,0) to (hd0).
I have to go into rescue mode to fix this.
This has been going on for awhile. Happened this morning with a brand new installation of SLES11 SP1 after running the post patches.
The boot partition is not on a SAN. It is on the local disk.
