Thanks a lot! I'd prefer if you could tell me something before booting the host, I'd like to reimage it straight away since it is running Trusty and the whole cluster is running Debian now.

@elukey the controller card has been swapped this is all can power on via mgmt. Please resolve this once you confirm.
