Description (partial)

There is a BootMgr memory leak on a standby Cisco APIC. If the BootMgr process crashes due to being out of memory, it continues to crash, but system will not be rebooted. After the standby Cisco APIC is rebooted by hand, such as by power cycling the host using CIMC, the login prompt of the Cisco APIC will be changed to localhost and you will not be able to log into the standby Cisco APIC.

This symptom maybe observed when a Cisco APIC is configured as standby during the initial setup.
If multiple Cisco APICs are configured as standby, the standby Cisco APICs with lower node IDs might face the symptom, but the highest might not. You can check the node IDs with the 'acidiag avread' command on an active Cisco APIC.
