After successful update of yum on my CentOS 6.4 VPS using command yum update -y I got this message: Warning: /etc/shadow has renamed /etc/shadow.newrpm

Is it something wrong? Should I rename it? Please help. Thx.


Nothing is wrong necessarily. If yum updates configuration files, usually somewhere under /etc, it saves the pre-update file and tells you so that if there is something in the old file that needs to be copied/implemented in the new file, you'll have it. It's a good idea to look for .rpmnew files on occassion to insure your files are appropriate for your configuration.
