Recently performed software update on a RHEL 6.6 (Santiago). Noticed that kernel version is not updated to latest one that was installed.
kernel version before doing software update:
[root@server01 ~]# uname -r 2.6.32-431.11.2.el6.x86_64
Below is the summary of kernel packages from yum list command:
[root@server01 ~]# yum list kernel Loaded plugins: amazon-id, rhui-lb, security Installed Packages kernel.x86_64 2.6.32-431.11.2.el6 installed kernel.x86_64 2.6.32-504.12.2.el6 @rhui-REGION-rhel-server-releases kernel.x86_64 2.6.32-504.16.2.el6 @rhui-REGION-rhel-server-releases Available Packages kernel.x86_64 2.6.32-504.23.4.el6 rhui-REGION-rhel-server-releases
Expecting the kernel would be updated to highest version among the installed ones. But it changed as below even after couple of reboots.
[root@server01 ~]# uname -r **2.6.32-504.12.2.el6.x86_64**
Any ideas? thanks!
