[Openstack] Loading Kernel Module during reboot

It depends what type of image you are booting.

If you are using a 3-part image, where the kernel and the initrd were originally outside of the root disk, then I've never tested how to make the necessary changes so the next boot pulls the kernel/initrd out from the image.

If the original image was a single-part and the kernel/initrd were extracted automatically at boot time then yes, simply updating grub.conf to reference the new kernel+initrd should be sufficient.

Subject: [Openstack] Loading Kernel Module during reboot


I have openstack run on top of Xenserver. I have created images (initrd and kernel images)  inside the /boot directory of the instance. I was wondering if it is possible to load the image during rebooting of the instance by changing the grub.conf?
