$ ocp 4.7.33


Please specify:

What happened?
OCP installation failed 
3 baremetal masters stuck(screenshot attached)

What did you expect to happen?

BM nodes up and running. Probably something wrong with boot loader

How to reproduce it (as minimally and precisely as possible)?

This issue reproducible on all 4.7.33  on Dell Power Edge R740.

Comment 2 Derek Higgins 2021-10-13 10:38:51 UTC
Looks like 4.7.33 brought with it a newer RHCOS

This updated to a newer version of shim
shim-x64-15-16.el8.x86_64 -> shim-x64-15.4-2.el8_1.x86_64

This shim package is broken, if the UEFI fallback boot patch is used 
(see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1970632 )

We have two options here
1. revert the RHCOS bump
2. Backport the ironic workaround into 4.7 (https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/ironic-python-agent/+/795862)

@yprokule could you, please, verify on your setup? We've seen the problem is not happening on our Dell setup

Comment 9 Lubov 2021-10-20 13:54:32 UTC
verified on 4.7.0-0.nightly-2021-10-15-152957
