All Services

There will be OS updates; reboots will be required.  Downtime should be minimal, and the usual high-availability mechanisms will be used to reduce service downtime even further and eliminate it in most cases.  However, services may experience degraded performance, and the services without HA mechanisms (OIM and Twiki) will still experience brief downtimes.  Updates include, but are not limited to:
* [RHSA-2013:0847-01] Moderate: kernel security and bug fix update
* [RHSA-2013:0869-01] Important: tomcat6 security update
* [RHSA-2013:0870-01] Important: tomcat5 security update
* [RHSA-2013:0911-01] Important: kernel security, bug fix, and enhancement update
