    I know CPanel/WHM will upgrade certain software packages... such as the ones associated with the web, mail, etc.

    Does this mean I don't need to use RHN (redhat network) to keep my system up to date? Will CPanel update my entire system or just parts of it?

    If there is trouble, it will find me
    Very good question. I am getting mixed messages from my datacenter. They tell me that I don't need to do up2date with my cpanel server, just to use the update functions in WHM. However, recently on their forums someone asked about upgrading to RH8 from RH7.3, and it was said that it might affect cpanel.

    My question would be if I always update with WHM, then what happens with RH? If I'm not getting all the necessary patches through WHM, then don't I need to use up2date?

    In my own personal experience, register with RHN then WHM will update most things when you click on update.

    But for major stuff (ossh etc) you still need to run up2date

    Red hat will not support upgrade for rh 7.2 from the end of march 2003. How can we keep update the o.s. if rh will not support it and whm will not update kernel ?
