3066548 - SAP kernel update with RKS procedure fails


When using the automatic RKS procedure with the command

     sapcontrol -nr XX -function UpdateSystem Y Z

The following message is returned: 

    FAIL: Start (<current kernel version>) and target (<target kernel version>) kernel version differ in RKS compatibility level (X vs. Y

When using the manual RKS procedure, the application servers shutdown after the ASCS instance is restarted, which was not expected.

The Dispatcher trace file (dev_disp) logs:

     ***LOG Q1K=> MsIAttachEx: compatibility check failed, Kernel not compatible with system [msxxi.c      1675]
     *** ERROR => Compatibility check failed, kernel not compatible with system (see dev_ms for details) [dpMessageSer 1856]
