On SLE12 the linuxrc parameter 'brokenmodules' is not working as expected.

This document (7018612) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 Service Pack 2 (SLES 12 SP2)
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 Service Pack 1 (SLES 12 SP1)


On SLE12 servers blacklisting of modules is not working as expected as known from SLES11 with the brokenmodules parameter.


Use modprobe.blacklist=xxx instead of brokenmodules.

Alternatively, provide a DUD with an updated driver using  dud=1 (interactively)  or with an URL pointing to a DUD dud=<URL>
