 ODA patching. Server patching completed successfully without any issues. But server is not booting up with new kernel 4.1.12-112.16.8.el6uek.x86_64 . 

 Verified the below in DOM-0:

 1)All the New kernel files are available in /boot directory

 2) Restarted server multiple times but still server is booting up with old kernel

 3) Verified /boot/grub2/grub.cfg, it was having proper entries for new kernel and it is the first entry

But still server is booting up with old kernel by default.


 No recent changes apart from ODA upgrade
