Opened: Sep 26, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

-- Software volumes no longer appear in the grub menu after reboot and are not available to boot into. -- Software volumes no longer reported by 'tmsh show sys software' if further upgrades are made.

Impact

Loss of software volumes.

Conditions

You may encounter this issue in the following scenario: -- You install an EUD package. -- You previously booted into a slot running v13.1.x or later. -- You downgraded to a pre-v13.1.x to perform the EUD installation.

Workaround

The workaround is to install the EUD package from the v13.1.x (multiboot software) volume or before installing EUD from v12.1.x (non-multiboot software). 1. Boot into the multiboot software volume (this syncs the grub.multiboot.cfg file and the legacy grub cfg file). 2. Boot back to 12.1.x (non-multiboot software) and install the EUD.

Fix Information

None
