A server reboot be would required to apply changes. Please make sure the boot sequence is correct. You can verify it by opening the grub boot loader configuration.

i.e. default=0. In the grub.conf the order going down the kernel list is 0, 1, 2, etc. So, ensure that if the default is configured to 0, then the first ‘title…’ is the latest kernel.

nano /etc/grub.conf with an editor and check that the ‘default=’ value is set to the up-to-date kernel.

Reboot server.

To verify which kernel is loaded after reboot, run the below command.

 uname -r

If it returns the correct value. Congratulations your server has been successfully reverted back to the original OS.
