Solutions I used after upgrade to rockstor 3.9.2-57

Hello, after upgrade to the latest stable release I faced 2 issues.

  1. a Kernel Panic on boot : root fs was not available
  2. samba server could not start

I found these solutions

  1. the upgrade updated the kernel but did not create the associated initramfs image file for that kernel. I rebooted using the old kernel and forced the re-installation of the latest kernel with yum reinstall kernel-ml-4.12.4-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64. The re-installation generated the /boot/initramfs-4.12.4-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64.img.
  2. journalctl -u nmd.service show a message: unreachable file After googling I found : cd /etc/; echo /usr/lib64/samba/wbclient >> samba-fix.conf; ldconfig. And then I manage to restart the services nmb and smb.
    Best regards.
