your system is built on a nearly 2 year old system with no security 
patches or bug fixes?   are you setting your self up for failure?

kernel 2.6.32-71 is from 2010-11-10, there have been probably 1000 
separate patches made to the EL6 kernel since then, never mind the rest 
of the distribution.

CentOS 6.0 was actually obsolete the day it was released, as RHEL had 
already released 6.1, which CentOS followed with in a matter of weeks.

the product is EL6, the .0, .1, .. are merely security rollups of the 
ongoing stream of updates and patches.
