Deploying a stateless host results with failure in exiting maintenance mode.

Problem

When you are in the process of deploying a stateless host, the host fails in exiting maintenance mode.

Cause

In an environment where the following takes place for a host profile:

  • The host profile is attached to a stateless host.

  • The host profile has host specific settings.

When the stateless host is rebooting, applying the host profile fails because the host does not exit from maintenance mode.

Results

  • Re-apply the host profile.

  • Remediate the host profile to the host again.

  • Reboot the host, if needed.

  • Refer to the host profiles command-line utility in Host Profiles CLI for customizing stateless hosts.
