Best Practices

Update system

We recommend that you keep your system up-to-date, especially with fixes for security vulnerabilities. To update all installed packages run:

yum update

Or to install only security updates:

yum update --security

Please consult with your system administrators for update procedures for your organization. For more information on installing only security updates, see this Red Hat Customer Portal article:

Note: Please check the VM Requirements page before upgrading your system from one major OS level to another (e.g. upgrading from RHEL 6 to RHEL 7). Ensure the higher level OS is supported, and if you are installing Blueworx Voice Response, check the kernel level is also supported.
