1. ABOUT THIS RELEASE
 
The current update for the Parallels Server Bare Metal 5.0 kernel provides a new
kernel based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 kernel (2.6.32-358.14.1.el6).
The updated kernel includes an important stability fix.
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
2. UPDATES DESCRIPTION
 
This update contains a fix for the following issue:
 
* The number of processes that are in an uninterruptible sleep state could
  have been reported incorrectly if a Container was suspended. This issue
  did not affect the real node load, but it indirectly affected the load average
  reported
 inside Containers. (PSBM-21408)

3. OBTAINING NEW KERNEL
 
You can download and install this kernel update using the "vzup2date" utility
