Description

This may be related to the CD-ROM ticket I have for VMs ( https://redmine.ixsystems.com/issues/26704 ).

I installed Ubuntu into a VM, ran updates within the VM just fine, rebooted the VM a few times successfully (fully booted).

Then I rebooted (nicely) the FreeNAS host, and now when the VM comes up, it kicks to a UEFI recovery console. :(

Not sure how to fix this, but this sure seems like a bug to me!

But I'm still hoping we can get something baked into FreeNAS to smooth these things over. Not sure what that would look like.

(sorry not sure how to correctly close tickets in this system)
