As a part of the Stable Release Updates quality process a search for Launchpad bug reports using the version of grub2 from xenial-proposed was performed and bug 1750732 was found. Please investigate this bug report to ensure that a regression will not be created by this SRU. In the event that this is not a regression remove the "verification-failed- xenial" tag from this bug report and add the tag "bot-stop-nagging" to bug 1750732 (not this bug). Thanks!

Status in grub: Unknown Status in grub2 package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in grub2-signed package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in zfs-linux package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in grub2 source package in Xenial: Fix Committed Status in grub2-signed source package in Xenial: Fix Committed Status in zfs-linux source package in Xenial: Fix Released Bug description: [Impact] Installs over ZFS where a ZFS disk is expected to be used as a root device. [Test case] - Run update-grub on a system with a ZFS root filesystem. [Regression Potential] Installs relying on the current broken behavior to avoid listing other operating systems in grub menu may find that new entries are added. --- update-grub runs /usr/sbin/grub-probe Without libzfslinux support compiled in, /usr/sbin/grub-probe runs ["zpool", "status", poolname] to find out ZFS info. zpool responds with device names as used at (I think!) pool creation time. Often, this is /dev/disk/by-id/... names, without the path. grub-probe then parses the output, and takes the names of devices, and if they do not start with a "/", it prepends "/dev/". It then tests the existence of the path name of the device. it fails. grub-probe then returns something like /usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: failed to get canonical path of `/dev /ata-ST31000333AS_99999999-part1'. The actual path is of course /dev/disk/by- id/ST31000333AS_99999999-part1 It can prepend smarter than "/dev" or it can understand ZFS natively, to fix the problem.
