Known Affected Releases
Symptom: After a node is rebooted, it does not boot back up. The VM Console in ESXi will show either: - Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)... ok - Black screen with cursor - FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.32-573.18.1.el16.x86_64/modules.dep: No such file or directory Conditions: This failure to boot back up occurs intermittently after a previous VM Power On Action that leads to an automated vmtools upgrade via Method3 as documented here https://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/uc_system/virtualization/virtualization-software-requirements.html#method3, which could result in a corrupted initramfs file in the boot partition.
