Kernel updated don´t update grub on Centos 6.4

So you have updated the kernel on you centos but you server is still running on the old kernel. Whenan kernel is updated yum updates the file /etc/grub.conf and that is an synlink to /boot/grub/grub.conf but if the link is broken then you will have two grub.conf. One /etc/grub.conf and one /boot/grub/grub.conf and then when you update en kernel the server will still not run on the new kernel.

 

Fixing this

cd /etc
mv /boot/grub/grub.conf /boot/grub/grub.conf_old
mv /etc/grub.conf /boot/grub/
ln -s /boot/grub/grub.conf .

Now the files are correct restart you server and it will start up on the new kernel

reboot
