When I run the Security Advisor I get the following warning:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Current kernel version is out of date. current: 2.6.32-358.2.1.el6, expected: 2.6.32-358.23.2.el6

Update current system software in the "Update System Software" area, and then reboot the system in the "Graceful Server Reboot" area.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I click the link to run the Update System Software and then perform a Graceful Server reboot as instructed but the message is still present. How do I resolve this?

Hello :)

Please run the following command:

Code:
yum update
Does it prompt you to accept a kernel upgrade?

Thank you.

Thanks Michael. As usual your fix was spot on. That performed the update flawlessly and after a graceful reboot all is well.

Hello :)

Please run the following command:

Code:
yum update
Does it prompt you to accept a kernel upgrade?

Thank you.


I have the same problem but mine is the same even after running update and graceful start
And when I run "yum update" it says "No Packages marked for Update" :(

Current kernel version is out of date. current: 2.6.32-358.14.1.el6, expected: 2.6.32-431.1.2.0.1.el6
Update current system software in the "Update System Software" area, and then reboot the system in the "Graceful Server Reboot" area.

Any help will be appreciated :)

Not to hijack the thread, but can the Security Advisor check for the existence of Ksplice and check version against uptrack-uname -r instead of just uname -r ...

So in our case we do have an outdated kernel loaded...
Code:
[[email protected] ~]# uname -r
2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64
but checking the effective kernel version shows that it is the latest...
Code:
[[email protected] ~]# uptrack-uname -r
2.6.32-431.3.1.el6.x86_64
Just a thought...
