Modifying the Security Level


To modify the security level after the appliance has been deployed, perform the following steps:

  1. Modify the /etc/yum/yum-cron.conf file to use one of the following options with the update_cmd entry, as shown in the last line of the following example:

    # What kind of update to use: 

    # default = yum upgrade

    # security = yum --security upgrade

    # security-severity:Critical = yum --sec-severity=Critical upgrade

    # minimal = yum --bugfix update-minimal

    # minimal-security = yum --security update-minimal

    # minimal-security-severity:Critical = --sec-severity=Critical update-minimal

    update_cmd = security
  2. Run the systemctl restart yum-cron command to apply the specified security level.
