SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT vda 253:0 0 20G 0 disk └─vda1 253:1 0 500M 0 part /boot/efi vdb 253:16 0 20G 0 disk └─vdb1 253:17 0 19.5G 0 part ├─system-swap 254:0 0 1.1G 0 lvm [SWAP] ├─system-root 254:1 0 12.8G 0 lvm / └─system-home 254:2 0 5.6G 0 lvm /home
With above configuration, unattended system boot will fail and fall back into grub shell:
If the boot process was interrupted and select manually the "sles-secureboot" from KVM Boot Manager, then the system will boot fine.
On other systems where the above is not possible, having /boot and /boot/efi on the same disk is a way to overcome the issue, such as:
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT vda 253:0 0 20G 0 disk ├─vda1 253:1 0 500M 0 part /boot/efi └─vda2 253:2 0 500M 0 part /boot
