I have two basically identical cPanel servers are running CloudLinux 6 OS (NOT os+, just CL 6.10) and KernelCare.

One of them has libcare running, but the other does not appear to even have it installed. Example:

[~]# service libcare restart
Shutting down libcare: [FAILED]
Starting libcare: [FAILED]

Is this a critical issue?

Thank you for any guidance.

You can safely ignore that warning. It doesn't prevent KC patches from being applied. We'll fix this issue in one of the following KC agent releases in order to avoid disturbing our customers.

Thank you for the reply.

I guess I'm just getting a little concerned because kcarectl --info on the server without libcare shows:

kpatch-for: Linux version 2.6.32-954.3.5.lve1.4.78.el6.x86_64

Whereas on the server that has libcare , kcarectl --info shows:

kpatch-for: Linux version 2.6.32-954.3.5.lve1.4.80.el6.x86_64

I'm not sure why the version number seems to be a bit behind on one server. Is this also something will resolve itself soon?

Thank you.
