Centos 6 kernel

4-point checklist to update Centos 6 kernel with minimal server downtime

In our Server administration services, we perform a wide range of tasks from server hardening to service optimization. Kernel updates are vital in our services, especially in scenarios where a vulnerability or exploit make the servers susceptible to hacks.

We perform kernel updates in all Linux flavours, and the procedure varies with the type of the OS installed in the server and its version. If not done with proper planning and caution, a kernel update can mess up with your server.
