HiTrivial question: Customer

Hi

Trivial question: Customer does a firmware upgrade; after the autoinstall infrastructure he does a autoinstall server, with a maintenance policy for ack in place.

Now there is a power failure in the datacenter ? what happens ? will the blade come up with the old version and the pending activities still exist ?
