Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance: ZS4-4 Unable to Edit Grub Menu - SP hangs (Doc ID 2284085.1)

Last updated on JULY 11, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Racked System ZS4-4 - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
7000 Appliance OS (Fishworks)

Symptoms

When trying to edit the grub on a ZS4-4 with 1.5TB of RAM we found when we interrupted the boot cycle by attempting to edit the grub menu, the ZS4-4 would appear to hang when we either entered the "e" key or when we attempted to use the arrow keys to move down to the line we wished to edit.

The only recovery was to pull the power cords to power cycle the SP.
