    Procedure to update Kernel in RHEL5

    You can use the following steps to upgrade the Kernel on a RHEL server.

    • Check the current kernel version using 'uname -r'
    • Get the desired kernel rpm for RHEL5.
    • Update the kernel using command 'rpm -Uvh <Kernel RPM>'
    • Reboot the system
    • Ensure that Linux is booted with upgraded kernel by re-executing the command 'uname -r'
