Deploy of hardware node fails in grub2-install

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • We are working on deploying OSP16 for our new cloud. This far we have been working on virtual controllers and compute nodes.

  • Now, we are tying to deploy hardware networker / compute, but that fails.

  • From logs extracted, we can see the following error:
