Preserve grub.conf before Installing Grid Infrastructure (Clusterware) on Xen/OVM else VM won't Boot (Doc ID 1065607.1)
Last updated on DECEMBER 20, 2010
Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 18.104.22.168.0 to 22.214.171.124.0 - Release: 11.2 to 11.2 Generic Linux
In 126.96.36.199.0, when installing or cloning Grid Infrastructure (Clusterware), root.sh installs the ASM Cluster File System (ACFS). When installing ACFS in a domU running a xen/OVM kernel, the base Linux driver installation routines may overwrite grub.conf with an incorrect version. When this happens, the following error may occur:
the VM fails to boot with the following error:
# xm create vm.cfg Using config file "./vm.cfg". Error: Boot loader didn't return any data!
This problem has been observed on OEL5/RHEL5 Update 3 and OEL5/RHEL5 Update4.
This can happen during 188.8.131.52.0 Grid Infrastructure (Clusterware) installation or cloning operation.
