When I try to run up2date, I get the following error:

Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
########################################
RPM package conflict error. The message was:
Test install failed because of package conflicts:
package quota-3.01pre9-3 is already installed

Please help me overcome this error. I run RH 7.2, and have automatic update of cpanel.

I don't understand how this is related to cpanel?
Is there a problem here with your quota system?

If that rpm is already installed, and you configured up2date to go out and grab anything possible, then this is a normal error - you can tell up2date to force all installs of packages it finds if you don't want to see the &already installed& error.

At your own risk, of course
;)

Sounds like you need to add it to your skiplist, since Cpanel seems to get quota packages just fine.

Run up2date --configure

Look for menu option pkgSkipList

It should have a list that looks something like 'kernel*'

Now add quotas to that list by selecting the menu option and add quota*

Thats it ..

Thanks Brad.

I have already removed the kernel* to enable kernel upgrade. Hope it works fine...

edit: Yes, it worked fine and my kernel is now upgraded.

I suppose updating the up2date rpm would fix this to, because it works difrently in RH 7.3 - it checks and registrers updatet packages. That's one of the things that makes 7.3 more convenient to use with WHM, you can also run the up2date when you like.

A good time is to update kernel. I have done quite a few times, and never had any problems. Better do it sometime quiet of cause. If you wanna update the kernel you well need to edit /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date.conf or whatever - and remove kernel from the skiplist. But leave the old rpms then.
