Switching to MODIFIED as I see we have a patch in upstream.
Comment 16 Martin Korbel 2018-03-21 04:38:19 EDT
VERIFIED on rhnsd-4.9.3-6.el6

I could not reproduce of the problem with kernel panic. In my case, rhnsd-4.9.3-5.el6 did not update /boot/grub/grub.conf (after reboot, the system still use the old kernel, but the packages are installed).

The problem is fixed in new version. rhnsd update /boot/grub/grub.conf (after reboot, the system use new version of kernel).
