My boss recently ran into this inexplicable error, and I looked at it at the time, and we both threw our hands up in the air and decided, we will pretty much have to live with it, since it was mostly harmless (The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy's description of planet Earth).
Recently I revisited the problem, and was in a more stubborn mind set and was able to track it down. Here's the scoop.
After installing updates on SLES/OES servers we have had issues where the server doesn't boot. The console comes to:
"No root device found; exiting to /bin/sh
This is because the kernel was upgraded and a new initrd was created but it was not created with EVMS support (for some reason, not sure why, wonder when Novell/SUSE is going to fix this??).
This article explains how we worked around that.
