How to find the grub files for the OS disks on X7-2 servers with Oracle Linux 7 (OL7) or Oracle Linux 6 (OL6). 


1. On OL7 a grub file exists for each OS disk.  However the grub file for the disk in slot 1 may not be updated by reset-grub-conf unless the latest patch for bdadiskutility is in place.

2. On OL6 a grub file only exists for the disk in slot 0.
