Netbackup 7.6 for RHEL 7 Linux Kernel 3.0 native client supp

How do we get this. So far as we can tell despite documentation to the contrary as detailed below we are still only seeing Linux Kernel 2.6 support in our 7.6 installation.

We had found technote some time ago while still running NetBackup 7.1:
[url=https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.TECH184987.html]https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.TECH184987.html[/url]

That essentially says that the Linux Kernel 3.0 wasn’t directly supported so one must run uname26 against the install for it to work. We did that and it worked.

We have since upgrade to NetBackup 7.6.1 and on trying to install a new RHEL7 client we had the same issue as we’d had with 7.1 and again were able to do the uname26 workaround.

However, the above technote says that as of NetBackup 7.5 the 3.0 kernel would be natively supported.

Additionally the OS compatibility list at:

Shows that RHEL7 is supported as a client as of 7.6.0.2.

Despite this we still only see the redhat2.6 clients as available and we’re wondering how do we get native redhat3.x client (with 2.6 and 3.x being kernel rather than RHEL versions of course)?
