I'm fighting a server with Centos 7 that doesn't start. I've no idea why. I found that I can pass the rd.debug parameter to the kernel and it logs a LOT of dracut initialization messages. 1.6MB in fact. But most of it consists of the same lines, looping over and over again. Looks like an infinite loop, but there are no error messages. The very start is slightly different, so I've included that together with a few more iterations. This is still happening in initramfs, before mounting true root.

What is going on here?

  • It looks like it's waiting for /dev/vg_home/lv_home to exist, getting a non-zero return code, running udevadm settle and trying again after sleeping half a second. Any chance that logical volume doesn't exist or isn't mounting? – jsbillings Aug 30 '19 at 22:36
  • @jsbillings - Yes... I removed those hard drives for the time being while I investigate this issue. ^_^ They're a mirrored pair (software mirror through LVM) that simply mounts to /home and one of them may be failing. However the issue was there even with them present. Hmm... maybe the log file would be different if the drives were there. I'll try that tomorrow. – Vilx- Aug 30 '19 at 22:45
  • @jsbillings - OK, tried it. It's the same. Buut... looks like there's something wrong there. I get error messages about one of the drives and the whole VG/LV isn't coming online (at least not automatically). My current guess is that one of the drives really is dead and that's why the system doesn't boot. Will keep on looking. – Vilx- Aug 31 '19 at 14:35
