Its just keeping your old configuration files because you used the -F (freshen) flag.

warning: ... cf created as ... rpmnew

running redhat9
i updated my system by running up2date and got similar messages as the previous poster:

[root@localhost matroska]# up2date
Stopping sshd:[ OK ]
Starting sshd:[ OK ]
warning: /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf created as /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.rpmnew
warning: /etc/mail/sendmail.cf created as /etc/mail/sendmail.cf.rpmnew
warning: /etc/mail/submit.cf created as /etc/mail/submit.cf.rpmnew
warning: /etc/postfix/main.cf created as /etc/postfix/main.cf.rpmnew

-what should i do with these files now? are the old files the "active" files or are the rpmnew ?
-do i have two versions of these packages installed?


i didnt use the "freshen tag" as mentioned above ...

If your program is working properly you can delete those files. I would keep them until I was sure everything was working as expected. Those files are backups in case something goes wrong.
