Configuration and RVM are all the same, I typically do 'rpm -Uhv' while
the servers are still running, and then do

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/update.init stop
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/auth2.init stop
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/codasrv.init stop

    ...this sleeps about 30 seconds while the server is shutting down...

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/update.init start
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/auth2.init start
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/codasrv.init start
