    I am getting the following from the security advisor

    Code:
    Current kernel version does not match the kernel version for boot. running kernel: 3.10.0-427.10.1.lve1.4.7.el7.x86_64, boot kernel:
    Reboot the system in the "Graceful Server Reboot" area. Check the boot configuration in grub.conf if the new kernel is not loaded after a reboot.
    This is Centos 7 and grub.conf does not exist, presumably that is why "boot kernel:" is empty.

    How can I resolve this?

    Hello,

    This is addressed in cPanel version 58 per the following entry in the change log:

    Fixed case CPANEL-5936: Use grub2 environment to determine default boot kernel.

    cPanel 58 is currently only available in the "Edge" release tier, but it's expected to make it's way to the "Current" release tier next week. You can find more information on the release and versioning system we use on the Product Versions and the Release Process document.

    Thank you.

    Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.

    Ticket 7616855

    It seems that our VPS provider (Linode) uses a Grub2 setup that doesn't match the assumptions made by the security advisor.
