IMPORTANT NOTICE: Patch Available, Immediate Installation Required

We are pleased to announce that we have completed all Engineering (Development and Quality Assurance) related activities for the issue that impacted the following kernel and versions:

We recommend that all customers running SIOS Protection Suite for Linux with DataKeeper replication on the operating systems listed above apply the SPS for Linux patch as soon as possible. The patch is located at:

The steps required to successfully install the patch are outlined in the readme file located in the patch folder.

The readme file will assist you with application of the patch by describing the pre-conditions, steps, and post-conditions and by providing recommended steps for verifying your data after the patch has been applied. This patch addresses the issue in the impacted raid1 kernel module immediately.

After you have applied the patch, we recommend that you do not update the kernel to a different version that does not include our patched raid1 kernel module. Refer to your Operating System documentation for restricting the automatic kernel updates. Also, you may refer to Solution 995 in our Self Service portal for restricting kernel updates with RHEL (log into the Customer Portal first to access). We will continue to provide updates for the final resolution.

If you have additional questions or would like assistance applying the patch, or require a newer kernel (due to security issues or regulations), please contact your SIOS Sales Representative or SIOS Technical Support.

We are committed to providing you with the highest quality of products and services and we are always available to answer any questions you may have.
