I used cycle centos 7 to deploy HC44rs instances for compute cluster.
Sometimes one or two nodes can't boot properly with following message.
"Phase timeout expired while awaiting "software installation" of (execute-2, XXXXX)|error"
Following is a error log of troubled node.

I killed plymouth process, then a node booted up properly. I think plymouth should be disabled for compute node's OS image.
How can I do it ?
