i have stability issues on nodes with high cpu load and i would move back the to kernel was on 7.4.
what is the best approach ?

i am on pve 8.0.4 kernel 6.2.16-14
I want to try it on a new a new node (fresh installed, and not upgraded from 7.4)
the node dont have kernel 5.15.116-1-pve installed

is it the flow:
proxmox-boot-tool kernel add 5.15.116-1-pve
proxmox-boot-tool pin 5.15.116-1-pve
proxmox-boot-tool refresh

after reboot does the kernet 5.15.116-1-pve will be loaded?
