This article relates primarily to users running CentOS on one of our CloudVM plans, but might apply to any server running CentOS 6.0.
In the upgrade from CentOS 6.0 to 6.2 a new kernel is installed. This new kernel upgrade causes a kernel panic on reboot unless you perform the following actions:
Edit the following files /etc/fstab and /boot/grub/menu.lst and change the device names from /dev/xvda1 and /dev/xvda2 (in the case of /etc/fstab) to /dev/xvde1 and /dev/xvde2 (in the case of /etc/fstab)
Note: you should _not_ apply any dist upgrades on our legacy VPS plans due to how the virtualisation on them operates.
