Issue/Introduction

The Linux Kernel was just upgraded and you need to know if the CSP or DCS agent that is installed must be re-installed to support it.

If the version of the kernel that was upgraded to is not supported by the currently installed agent, you must uninstall it and install a newer version of the agent which supports the version of the kernel it was upgraded to.
