I want to update my system by yum command, after executing yum update it wants to update kernel to 2.6.32-431.5.1.el6 version also it wants to remove my oldest kernel version (2.6.32-279.el6).

Question: How to prevent YUM from removing my previous kernel versions?

It's done with yumdb set installonly keep kernel-2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64 command.

By default, yum leaves three kernel versions around, and has safeguards against removing the running kernel (and a few other critical system components).
