    I’m sure this is the wrong area, please move this or direct me to the right place, thanks!

    As a suggestion consider this change to the “New Security Advisor notifications with ...” emails for:

    Code:
    New Security Advisor notifications with High importance
    
    Type
    Module
    
    Advice
    High
    
    Kernel
    
    The system kernel is at version “2.6.32-696.16.1.el6.x86_64”, but an
    update is available: 2.6.32-696.18.7.el6.x86_64 Update the system
    (run “yum -y update” on the command line), and reboot the system.
    
    Replace:

    ‘reboot the system.’

    with

    ‘reboot the system by running “reboot -h now”.’ *

    Why?:

    ‘-h’ requests reboot to halt all processes first, so that MySQL (etc.) doesn’t exit un-cleanly.

    # # #

    * Or however your admins think it should be worded…

    Best,
    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    As I understand, there are some cases where the "reboot" command isn't recommended (e.g. A VPS provider may prefer the virtual servers are rebooted through a VPS management utility). Thus, the method of reboot can vary depending on the server environment.

    Thank you.
