Released kmod-ocfs2-flexvdi-k1160-1.5.0-2

Redhat/CentOS kernel 3.10.0-1160.62 and upper has a symbol removed[1] breaking compatibility. This prevents kmod-ocfs2-flexvdi-k1160-1.5.0-1.el7.x86_64.rpm to be loaded, so when using newer kernels, OCFS2 filesystems where unavailable until kernel was downgraded again to < 3.10.0-1160.62.

We have published a new release of package kmod-ocfs2-flexvdi-k1160-1.5.0-2.el7.x86_64.rpm, that solves this situation.

When updating host kernel 1160 in a flexVDI hosts using OCFS2, remember to update kmod-ocfs2-flexvdi-k1160 too.

If you want to update this package now, just run:

yum update kmod-ocfs2-flexvdi-k1160-1.5.0

This command will also install the new kernel if needed, which will be used after the next reboot of the server.
