    Hi

    After installing a new kernel do i have to restart the server?

    Code:
    Installing : kernel-2.6.32-504.3.3.el6.x86_64
    Also do i have to add again all kernel optimizations on sysctl.conf?

    Thanks

    yup restart is needed and no need for redoing sysctl.conf

    If i install a new kernel using yum update and i don't reboot and then after a few days i install again using yum update a newer kernel and then i reboot it will auto load the latest one?

    Thanks
