Pending job running forever


#1

I just upgraded/updated from AsteriskNOW 13 to 14 (Sangoma Linux 7) on a HP ML350 G5 machine.

The first restart was successful but after the second restart, the machine is stuck at

a start job is pending for dev-disk-by\x2duuid…
like forever!

Appreciate help fixing it…

My problem is different, not like the one described in the above link.

It has to do with CentOS 7 (Sangoma 7) not recognizing RAID disks/partition.

This post describes my situation very well:

Though, at this time, I have been adding

hpsa.hpsa_simple_mode=1 hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1
 to the boot loader/kernel every time i restart the server which is quite rare.  This allowed me to load the installed OS.
