I don't really understand all this below honest. People use kernel care and so on to save on reboots and then you get things like that you can restart from ssh one by one which takes fo ever or reboot the server ? so what's the point of kernel care and others like this.

Detected 1 process that is running outdated executables: 684
You must take one of the following actions to ensure the system is up-to-date:
Restart the listed process.
Reboot the server.

Is this a CentOS 7 server? Does cPanel on CentOS 7 use CentOS's Network Manager for managing network interfaces?

It would seem that you would need to restart your network, but I do not know how to advise you on how to do this. My experience with CentOS 7 is very limited.

Hello,

You could try the following, although you will have to do it on your own risk, depending on your setup:

Code:
systemctl status NetworkManager.service
systemctl restart NetworkManager.service
systemctl status NetworkManager.service
First I would check the status to see if it's running and if everything's ok, then I would restart the service and ultimately check again if it's restarted correctly.

Let me know if it worked.

Sorry only just seen these replies never got an email for some reason.

I rebooted one of my servers last night and tonight again it says Detected 128 processes that are running outdated executables: surely this is can't be right and i have to reboot again.

Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look?

Thank you.

I have in the past they just told to restart them manually or reboot. but to resart each one is ridiculous
Was the ticket opened for the same issue (the detection of several new processes requiring a reboot on a nightly basis)? If so, could you let us know the ticket number so we can take a closer look?

Thank you.

Hello,

Could you open a new ticket and note that it's producing a new warning every night even after rebooting the system?

Thank you.

Sorry no after a reboot the warnings go, but i can't keep rebooting the server surely.
I'm referring to the reappearance of the warnings on a nightly basis. EX:

Day 1 - Detected 97 processes that are running outdated executables
Day 1 - Reboot
Day 1 - No processes detected
Day 2 - Detected 97 processes that are running outdated executables

Is that's what is happening on your system? If so, could you open a ticket so we can take a closer look?

Thank you.

Yes i just checked site advisor now and it says Detected 97 processes that are running outdated executables since my last reboot a few days ago.

I don't think it's every night and i would think it depends on what's updated.
