Its quite simple really. Do not update the bootloader. packages that you installed in 4.4 will get updated in 4.6. If your server is connected to external storage you should upgrade your HBA drivers et al. Prior to doing all of this is is ALWAYS a good idea to take a complete backup of your systems.

Assuming you've got a legal version of RHEL, use the RHN (RH Network).
