    RHEL6 has released kernel updates 2.6.32-754.14.2 and
    2.6.32-754.15.3. This apar provided support for these kernels
    in the Load Balancer for IPv4 release. To avoid requiring
    kernel specific module, users should use the Load Balancer for
    IPv4 and IPv6.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Kernel support provided for 2.6.32-754.14.2 and 2.6.32-754.15.3
    Fix : 8.5.5.16
    
    The Load Balancer for IPv4 is going out of support Sep 30,
    2019 and no additional kernel specific modules will be provided.
    
    Use of the Load Balancer for IPv4 and IPv6 is recommended to
    avoid having to have kernel specific modules.
