Update Initrd

Have you blacklisted a kernel module, but it’s still showing up at boot?

You probably need to update your initrd, a compressed filesystem used to bootstrap the OS.

Simply run “dracut –force”, and the initrd will be recreated, taking into account any configuration changes made in your /etc filesystem. Then reboot. Your changes are now recognized at system boot time.

Use our Breakin stress test and diagnostics tool to pinpoint hardware issues and component failures.
