    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    Current kernel version is out of date.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?

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

    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" :(


    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    So in our case we do have an outdated kernel loaded...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:
    [root@cp3 ~]# uname -r
    2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64
    but checking the effective kernel version shows that it is the latest...
    Code:
    [root@cp3 ~]# uptrack-uname -r
    2.6.32-431.3.1.el6.x86_64
    Just a thought...
