I'm a professional sysadmin in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina. I've been doing sysadmin work since 1996, I've worked for a smattering of companies including Red Hat, two academic institutions, a regional bank, and now a rail transportation company.

comment Prevent reboot after yum update
A package can trigger a reboot, but only when it is installed or upgraded, not by simply being on a system. There is a cron job, or a job in a cron-like facility, that is causing the reboots. Seriously, check around in your organization - someone there knows what is causing it and how to stop it.

comment Prevent reboot after yum update
Based on your comment above, there is some sort of job, be it cron or a cron-like facility, that is causing the reboots. It is very much specific to your environment, and if there's nothing in any cron directories that can account for it, you'll really need to get the information on what causes it from your organization internally.

comment Moved registrars/DNS, now site is unavailable for most?
Scratch that - my proxy was responding for port 80. I now agree, it looks like a firewall.

comment Moved registrars/DNS, now site is unavailable for most?
Smells like an application issue - I can ping the IP and I get a response to a telnet on port 80, but I don't get a response to a GET / HTTP/1.0 after connecting via telnet. Did you recently push a new version or otherwise restart services?

Can you post the entire specfile? Or, can you post the results of find /home/user/rombuild/BUILDROOT -name config? (Or both, actually...)

Simply add more space to the filesystem where your KVM images are kept.
