Severity: 3-Major


In rare circumstances, when a reboot immediately follows a VIPRION blade failover, a REBOOT REQUIRED prompt will appear on one blade after the system starts up again.


Following the clsh reboot, the REBOOT REQUIRED prompt appears on one blade: [root@vip4480-r44-s18:/S2-yellow-S::REBOOT REQUIRED:Standalone] config # Any blade with this prompt must be rebooted again.


This issue can be created by doing the following: - using a VIPRION system with at least 2 blades running - AAM is not provisioned - reset the primary blade - immediately following the blade reset, run 'clsh reboot' on a secondary blade.


None currently known.
