Hi, folks,

Well, I get back from vacation, and three CentOS 7 boxes didn’t come up this morning (my manager and the other admin did the update & reboot). On these three – but *not* another one or two, and I don’t think those others are Dells, they’re supermicro’s – the 327 kernel fell into the rdosshell, I guess. I finally got one the three up by going back to the
228.14 kernel.

Now, after googling and finding the CentOS bugzilla, 0009860, that referenced the upstream bugzilla, I applied the workaround discussed in it, Adding initcall_blacklist=clocksource_done_booting to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in /etc/default/grub and then grub2-mkconfig -o
/etc/grub2.cfg”

On one. On the other, that’s got a *large* RAID appliance (a JetStor w/
42 4TB drives…), it seemed to work… then gave me a dozen or so ERROR: unsupported sector size 4096 on /dev/sdd. ERROR: unsupported sector size 4096 on /dev/sde.

0. Did the grub2-mkconfig actually work correctly?
1. Is it safe to ignore the errors and reboot?
2. This seems to be an old bug in os-prober, that was fixed
years ago – has it slipped back in?
