    Maybe I'm missing something here, but I don't see how the kernel check feature is supposed to work with containers - LXC / OpenVZ / Virtuozzo - where the user has no control over the kernel and kcarectl isn't going to be installed to provide the correct kernel - yet I'm being told the server needs rebooting...

    Hello @hbouma,

    I moved this post to a separate thread. "WHM >> Security Advisor" will detect if the server is on a virtual environment (e.g. Virtuozzo, LXC) and output the following notice:

    As far as the reboot warning as it appears in Web Host Manager, could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look at the particular situation on the affected server?

    Thank you.

    Hi Hal,

    Where are you seeing the reboot message: in the WHM header, or within Security Advisor?

    Which version of cPanel & WHM are you seeing this in?

    Which container technology (and version) are you using?
