- It breaks kABI (Kernel Application Binary Interface). Please note that SUSE is very strict on guaranteeing kABI stability/compatibility on Service Pack cycle.
- kernel-azure build has no long term support (LTSS) , i.e. it gets full support until EOL of the given service pack according to the overlap lifecycle.
- kernel-azure is a stripped off kernel, as it missed some modules that are available on the SUSE default kernel.
- There is no support for add-on products such as HA or Kernel Live Patching for PAYG on-demand instances.
# zypper in –no-recommends kernel-default # zypper rm kernel-azure # shutdown -r nowThe use of –no-recommends option prevents the auto-installation of the kernel-firmware package which is not needed inside a VM.
