Summary0000162: Latest Rocky-9 cloud-image does not boot (appears to get stuck)
DescriptionDownloaded from

Tested on OpenStack (rocky).

Usually, after spawning a VM, it is possible to watch it booting by fetching the serial console and
after some time, sshd starts listening on port 22. With this image however, nothing happens on the
console and after some 10min, I gave up waiting for being able to connect to port 22.

Other images (among those: rocky-8.6) are working fine.
Steps To Reproduce1. Upload image to my local OpenStack cloud
2. Attempt to startup a vm using the uploaded image.
Additional InformationUploaded image on OpenStack has correct checksum:

sha256sum /var/lib/glance/images/b0e30785-b8a6-43dc-8333-2aeecaa90691

Uploaded image on OpenStack appears to be a valid qcow2 image:

Tried booting from that image locally using kvm (libvirt), gives the same result. Host is a Fedora35.
On the text console of the vm, the last message (from the virtual bios) can be seen:

Booting from Hard Disk...

After that, nothing.

- I DID search before reporting...
- Why can't I enter bug relations and/or close an issue that I reported?!
