If a customer updates a kernel which is not delivered by SUSE he looses his support.
Within SLES-for-SAP-Applications 12 SP1 we ship Kernel 3.12.59
and with ServicePack 2 we will go to a 4.4 Kernel.

So he needs to upgrade from SP1 to SP2, which is a normal process and documented within our release notes and install documentation

SLES4SAP 12 SP2 will come out later this year.
