At 12:54 kernel upgrades are completed. Sorry this took so long but one physical host failed to boot properly. The Nvidia graphics card did not initialize properly and systemd brought the machine up into single user mode but not multi-user mode so I could not access from here. I had to drive to the Co-Location facility which is 22 miles away and there was construction work at the I-5 / I-90 interface that made that take longer than it should have.
I am still checking NIS/NFS mounts, but all the basic subsystems are up and running.
