I think i found the issue. automatic updates are running and there is a discrepancy in the repos listed in the yum.repos.d directory. namely, the server that is at 5.9 had this enabled: [ol5_UEK_latest] name=Latest Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel for Oracle Linux $releasever ($basearch) baseurl=public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL5/UEK/latest/$basearch gpgkey=public-yum.oracle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-el5 gpgcheck=1 enabled=1

checked that out, nothing substantial, just some perl, python and nagios package updates.

the first thing that I did was check the timestamp on redhat-release, I wanted to be 100% sure that the date was reliable. Also checked yum.log, nothing there indicating a version upgrade, just some package updates. Also, it looks like yum-updatesd is running on the 5.9 server as well as the 5.8 boxes. I don't think I can reliably say that it was automatically updated.
