On machine with CPU that does not support PAE (e.g., Check Point UTM-1 270 appliances), the "noPAE" Linux kernel is loaded, which is parsing the
/proc/version in order to get the kernel type.
/proc/version does not provide any data regarding "noPAE" kernels.
As a result, the
vpnt kernel module looked at the "PAE" kernel and got disagrees about the version.
