To check the currently active kernel version we will use uname with -r which will give us kernel release information:
[root@b1s ~]# uname -r
4.18.0-193.28.1.el8_2.x86_64


[root@b1s ~]# grubby --info="/boot/vmlinuz-4.18.0-193.28.1.el8_2.x86_64"
index=2
kernel="/boot/vmlinuz-4.18.0-193.28.1.el8_2.x86_64"

Check the kernel version which is going to be activated post reboot

[root@b1s ~]# grubby --grub2 --default-title
CentOS Linux (4.18.0-193.28.1.el8_2.x86_64) 8 (Core)

 

[root@b1s ~]# grubby --default-kernel
/boot/vmlinuz-4.18.0-193.28.1.el8_2.x86_64

 

# grubby --default-index

Change the default kernel 

 

[root@b1s ~]# grubby --set-default "/boot/vmlinuz-4.18.0-193.14.3.el8_2.x86_64"

 

Verify the new default kernel

# grubby --default-kernel
# grubby --default-index
# uname -r
