Openvz Kernel Updates [ Note Some server may be rebooted ]


Staff member
Generally we use kpslice and kernelcare rebootless kernel updates. However, a recent vulnerability with in openvz has been patched in a new kernel, and updates are not yet available through ksplice and kernelcare.

Some servers will be manually upgraded, which requires a reboot. This can take up to 15 minutes. Generally speaking, the ram data is saved to disk and the vps resumes on start up and appear to not have rebooted.
