When installing Performance Portal, the Linux version underlying is checked. If this version is too high, this results in an error message. This component not being essential for the production use, but for monitoring/administration, it would be acceptable to have this product installed, and find it dysfunctional, due to a too recent Linux OS.
It would be best, not to throw an ERROR and exit the installation procedure, but to raise a WARNING, and offer to continue (on one's own risk).
Use case: Install the Performance Portal on RHEL 7, and see the error.
Business justification: Usability of a monitoring tool would improve the value generated by product suite.
