When upgrading the server on older Linux kernel versions earlier than 2.6.18-194.el5, the corresponding error message is generated:

Kernel <Kernel Name> is not supported by this installer. Current server application uses Java 8 and newer OS versions (>5.5). Installation can proceed however application will not be able to start.

To fix the upgrade error:


  1. Downgrade the JAVA version, then restart the server.
  2. Upgrade kernel allowing JRE 8 to function (JRE depends on GLIBC).
