6.0(3)E1 patch applied successfully to our non-production IDS-4215. Applying the patch to our production IDS-4235 causes it to boot directly to grub> command prompt. It appears the system files are there. What command do I need to issue for grub to finish patching and can someone share the content of /boot/boot/grub.conf from IDS-4235 with 6.0(3)E1 so I can boot it manually? Thank you.
As it turns out the 6.0(3)E1 service pack wiped the content of grub.conf file which is mounted as read only from /dev/boot as /boot. To restore the content of grub.conf as root user (after logging in with support account and doing "su -") remount the filesystem as read write with the following command:
mount -o remount,rw /dev/boot
After restoring grub.conf the appliance can be reloaded normally without manual intervention. Fortunately, it appears the patch broke early enough in the process that nothing else other than grub.conf, as far as I can tell, was affected. The appliance is reporting the prior 6.0(2)E1 version.
I just got off the phone with our reseller support and they and Cisco finally admitted that it's a known issue classified as unreleased bug after saying that IDS-4235 is not supported with 6.0(3)E1 service pack then saying a reimage is needed to fix the grub issue.

I've applied the upgrade from 6.0.2 to 6.0.3 on IPS-4240, and got bitten by the same problem. The upgrade was performed through the IDM interface. Were your upgrades done through the IDM or through the CLI?
