Supplementary patch requirement

If, after applying the first release of the patch (v1.0.0-3), you encounter the reboot issue again, apply the supplementary patch release (v1.0.0-4).

Patch must be re-applied after re-image or update to another affected version

While the BIOS and BMC firmware update is persistent and is not reverted after re-image or update, changes to some services on the appliance are reverted. Re-apply the patch after performing one of the following actions:

>Re-image the appliance to Luna Network HSM Appliance Software 7.2.0 and Luna HSM Firmware 7.0.3
