Hi there,

This is an interesting case, I have forwarded this information to our Managed Kubernetes team for an internal follow-up.

An alternative solution in the meantime would be to set up a Kubernetes cluster on a few Droplets, that way you will have full control over the Kernel version of your servers.

Best, Bobby
