Are there any precautions when installing update packages for Linux servers?

We have confirmed an issue when updating the "tzdata" package in the standard yum application causes the server's time zone to switch to EDT.

It is recommended to exclude the "tzdata" package from the update process by entering the following exclude=kernel*tzdata* line in the yum.conf file.


# vi /etc/yum.conf

exclude=kernel* tzdata*
