Hi,

Is it safe to ignore the subject line when running Kernel Care?

Code:
[[email protected] ~]# whmapi1 system_needs_reboot
---
data:
details:
updates:
glibc: 2.17-260.el7_6.6
needs_reboot: 1
metadata:
command: system_needs_reboot
reason: OK
result: 1
version: 1
And Kernel Care Says:
Code:
[[email protected] ~]# kcarectl --uname
3.10.0-962.3.2.lve1.5.25.8.el7
[[email protected] ~]# kcarectl --update
Kernel is safe

Hello @fdnven,

The reboot notification is accurate, but it does not relate to your kernel. Instead, the reboot is advised because your system's glibc RPM was updated. Glibc is a core system library and a reboot is recommended when it's updated to ensure any running process depending on Glibc is restarted.

Thank you.
