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
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.

The purpose of this article is to group everything that may help troubleshooting generally (and in some cases, specifically) for the benefit of those who may not have been in a support organization for several years.
