On Oracle VM, all supported releases, when checking if a repository is mounted on a Oracle VM Server e.g. after a VM Server restart, using 'mount' command.
One of the repositories is no longer mounted on the Oracle VM Server from 'mount' output.
Checking ovs-agent's log file (/var/log/ovs-agent.log), the following error is being reported:
