Description of problem:
After updating the kernel and before rebooting the status icon on
https://rhn.redhat.com/network/systems/index.pxt appears as a blue
checkmark. Indicating, FALSELY, the that the host is now fully
patched. The new kernel is indeed installed, but it is not functional.
So, I suggest adding a new icon to indicate 'the system is fully
updated but it needs to be rebooted.' Perhaps an icon of a 'coyboy
boot' would be appropriate.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL (from iso images)
2. up2date -u
3. check https://rhn.redhat.com/network/systems/index.pxt
4. The system will have a blue check mark even though it is still
running the kernel from the iso image.
Expected Results: A different icon should appear on
https://rhn.redhat.com/network/systems/index.pxt to indicate that the
system need to be rebooted.
To get very fancy, you could check the running kernel version against
the latest release and send email to administrators indicating that a
host needs to be rebooted.
