The ZFS roll for Rocks 7.0 has been updated. It addresses an issue at node installation when a new kernel is in rocks distribution (via rocks create distro), but there is no corresponding kmod-spl/kmod-zfs rpm to match the new kernel.

New installations from the current Rocks central server will automatically use the updated roll.

Existing installations should

  • download the updated zfs roll roll iso. (you should validate its md5sum)
  • add this roll to your current rocks distribution with rocks add roll zfs-linux*iso
  • rebuild the distribution in /export/rocks/install with rocks create distro

No further action is needed after you have updated the roll.
