Upgrading Kernel in Cloudbreak Cluster

New Contributor

Would that be a better idea to perform kernel upgrade with the help of Recipe. Kernal upgrade requires restart.

Are you asking about upgrading the kernel for nodes of a cluster that has already been deployed? Cloudbreak recipes are run during cluster deployment; they don't come into play after the cluster has been deployed.

If you are asking about doing a kernel during cluster deployment with a recipe, I believe it is technically possible. You probably want to do that as a post installation recipe. However, I advise caution in doing something like this. You might be better served using something like Ansible to manage patch deployment outside of Cloudbreak. Just my two cents.

If you wish to use your own OS with own kernel you can take look at the custom images feature:
