During the installation of IM8.1 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.6, the prerequisite checker script is run and it returns a warning message:
KIM - IBM Monitoring [version 01020006]:
Property Result Found Expected
======== ====== ===== ========
os.kernelsNotSupported WARN 2.6.32-504 2.6.32-434;2.6.32-504.7.1
This warning message cannot be ignored.
There was a limitation in RHEL itself (https://bugzilla.linux.ibm.com/show_bug.cgi?id=119049) which create problem (hangs) in several processes (also non-IBM processes).
This problem was related to kernel levels
2.6.32-434 to 2.6.32-504.7.1
and so it includes also the current level found by the prereq checker (2.6.32-504).
To workaround this defect you need to use a proper release of RHEL (eg 6.4 or 6.5) that has a valid kernel level not affected by the problem described above. Eg. kernels 2.6.32-431.20.5 and 2.6.32-504.8.1 resulted to be not affected by this problem.
