    Hi in WHM cPanel Security Advisor it says this below, but its all ready updated. but i clicked it again and it checked said no updates but still get this message.

    Current kernel version is out of date. current: 2.6.32-358.23.2.el6, expected: 2.6.32-431.1.2.0.1.el6

    PS also rebooted the server

    Have you tried yum update on the command line?

    If so, and you're on cetos hop into /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo and take a look at whether you're set to use a particular mirror for updates. Some seem to have purposefully held back on 2.6.32-431.1.2 as 2.6.32-431.1.2.0.1 was released afterwards to fix a screw up

    You can check your mirror against the status of CentOS mirrors to see if it's up to date - if not and if you want the update you can always change your mirror (as long as it's holding 2.6.32-431.1.2.0.1!

    It said it had updated when i ran yum update from a command line, and also said it had removed the old version.


    PS just run the command yum update and got this below

    Take a look in boot and your grub.conf - is the new kernel present? what does uname -a return? If your machine is running the new kernel from that output you can ignore the security advisor output, I'm not 100% on if it caches it's checks anywhere

    Hello :)

    There is an internal case open to address the issue with the Security Advisor detecting the incorrect kernel. For reference, the case number is 85597. You can verify the kernel installed on your system via:

    Code:
    uname -r
    Thank you.

    I was reading this because i have a similar issue, i think my kernel number is dif than above but same issue.

    however when i look at the CentOS-Base.repo file the centos.org is not even on the list for me in the USA

    not found in USA listing so can i just try some others and the do yum update on each and see which one fires the kernel update or whatever it does.

    mine shows

    this is my first time doing this but i gather you do it something like this

    changed mirror list to mirror-status
    changed base to the one i wanted on the list mirror.centos.serving.com


    well that didnt work i should not have to play a guessing game folks, i should be able to go right to the issue and right to the instructions of exactly what to do here.



    UPDATE i dont even have a boot/grub/grub.conf file, it does not exist.

    Are you on a OpenVZ vps server ? if you are it uses a shared kernel and you wont be able to change it.

    Yes sir i am openVZ and perfect timing because i just found that out as well. But since the shared one is 2+ years old i have sent my host a ticket to see if i can get it updated.

    Thank you so much... :)
