Hi,

I've installed CloudLinux successfully but am now seeing the following in security advisor.

A newer kernel is installed, however the system has not been rebooted. running kernel: 2.6.32-531.23.3.lve1.2.66.el6, most recent installed kernel: 2.6.32-504.el6

Reboot the system in the "Graceful Server Reboot" area. Check the boot configuration in grub.conf if the new kernel is not loaded after a reboot.

I've rebooted the system several times to no avail.

I've checked the grub.con file which reads as follows but I'm lost as to what I need to do next.

Code:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda1
# initrd /boot/initrd-[generic-]version.img
#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=5

Hello :)

Internal case number 110893 is open to address an issue where Security Advisor reports $latest_kernel based on build date rather than the version number. There is currently no specific time frame available on a resolution, but you can monitor changes to "Security Advisor" at:

Thank you.
