Hi,
is it safe to have "Enable Linux kernel update during nightly maintenance." ON?

Using CentoOS7.
Are there any drawbacks or risks by leaving it to update automatically?
Thanks

Hey there! The kernel is something that can be automatically updated with Yum. Most users let the system handle that update, although a reboot may be necessary after a new kernel is installed before it is active on the machine. As long as you haven't tried to use any custom kernels in the past, I would expect this to be a safe operation to let the server perform.
