Apt dbox node won't boot
When doing a routine FreeNAS upgrade resulting in a reboot, the machine would not boot again.
At first I thought this was due to an intermittently failing disk in the RAID, I have seen a situation where upon reboot it refused to boot due to a drive with a "foreign config" and requiring that I physically type some character on the console to continue. But I pulled the drive and hooked up the VGA, and there is no additional output beyond what I get via the iDRAC virtual console.
I would think it was a failed upgrade of FreeNAS except that I cannot make the node go into the BIOS or the boot menu or even PXE boot, so there appears to be something wrong before it gets to the actual OS boot. I could be getting fooled however.
I also hooked up the serial console in case it was switching over and no longer outputting to the VGA. No dice.
