  1. ABOUT THIS UPDATE

    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 (2.6.32-358.18.1.el6). The updated kernel includes a number of stability fixes.


  2. UPDATE DESCRIPTION

    This update includes the following fixes:

    • The file system of a VZFS-based Container could remain frozen after a backup, resulting in processes being stuck on disk I/O operations. (PCLIN-32011, PCLIN-32055)

    • Under certain circumstances, the filesystem freeze operation could still pass writes to disk, which could cause online migration failures. (PSBM-22372)


  3. OBTAINING THE NEW KERNEL

    You can download and install this kernel update using the vzup2date utility included in the Parallels Server Bare Metal 5.0 distribution set.
