I just started a job, and I was given a couple of linux servers to go through. My boss wants me to do a tech refresh on the server. What does that mean? ...just update the packages?

What's a good command to find out what all need to be updated on the server? These are RHEL 4's and 5s

It really depends on your company's best practices for the local servers. It is highly recommended to ask your boss directly to have a full understanding about it. You are newly employed, that's reasonable to ask.

However, from a general point of view, see below for a hardware upgrade and server refresh guide.

The term is relatively generic, but in general, it simply means updating to new hardware and software and potentially incorporating any new technology that makes the environment more streamlined.
