We plan to use OCFS2 in a project running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.6 because we found OCFS2 to be much simpler to set up than GFS.
I am, however, worried about the upgrade process since I understand OCFS2 depends on the kernel version number. If I perform
yum update on my RHEL host I might receive a newer kernel version. What would be the correct way to keep OCFS2 updated and working?
What is the best practice to have an OCFS2 system that runs a long time and also gets kernel updates?
