According to the DreamHost page advertising dedicated servers:
“Our dedicated server experts will keep all server software up to date and monitor the performance of your server 24/7/365 so you can rest easy and focus on your business. It’s fully managed dedicated hosting from DreamHost.”

It may have been set to “unmanaged” in 08/14 to fix the limit on connections per IP being set too low, but prior to that was always set “managed”, why is the OS so severely out of date?
