Disable Kernel Auto Updates
Yesterday one of our CENTOS server started behaving weird. After restarting the server it lost all the networking functionality.
After reading https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/no-connection-after-reboot I noticed the server in fact had too kernels installed:
3.10.0-327.28.2.el7.x8664 ( with the timestamp of when the problems began )
I tried everything but I wasn’t able to get back the network services ( NetworkManager not regular network), so I had to create another Droplet and start the restore process.
Is there any way to disable the auto update feature so this would not happened again?
