This web page describes how to patch our SCCS maintained Servers.  We have options in the taylor.opts file to control what taylor does to our servers.  We have added Linux_Kernel=leavealone to have complete control on when our servers get patched and rebooted.



List of the SCCS maintained servers and their taylor.opts files are this web page


  1. To install and enable the latest kernel:
    1. Comment out the line linux_kernel=leavealone in /etc/taylor.opts
    2. Run:     sudo /afs/slac/package/taylor/prod/taylor everything
    3. uncomment the line linux_kernel=leavealone in /etc/taylor.opts
    4. reboot
