Applies to:Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software - Version 22.214.171.124.0 to 126.96.36.199.1 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
After using the makeImageMedia.sh script from the ImageMaker kit (from edelivery) to create a USB bootable disk, the USB will not boot up to begin imaging. The system hangs during boot and displays a "grub>" prompt. This issue affects both storage cell and Linux DB node images. This does not affect ISO-based imaging or PXE-based imaging processes.
This issue is found only with Exadata software versions 188.8.131.52.0 and 184.108.40.206.1.
