Unable to install Idera R1soft CDP Enterprise Agent

If you are installing CDP Agent on Linux and following the link http://wiki.r1soft.com/display/CDP3/Installing+Agent+on+CentOS%2C+RHE+and+Fedora

Please follow the step 4.4 carefully.

You can see the error message below when running the command
 # r1soft-setup --get-module

===============================================================
Please check the kernel devel and kernel version are the same. If they are different you won't be able to compile CDP kernel module.

Please run the following commands to check what is wrong:

#uname -a
#uname -r
#rpm -qa |grep kernel ---using this command you can see the kernel devel and kernel 

version installed.
kernel-headers-2.6.18-448.16.1.el5.lve0.8.70
kernel-2.6.18-338.5.1.el5.lve0.8.29
kernel-2.6.18-448.4.1.el5.lve0.8.69
kernel-devel-2.6.18-448.16.1.el5.lve0.8.70
kernel-2.6.18-374.3.1.el5.lve0.8.44
kernel-devel-2.6.18-448.4.1.el5.lve0.8.69.1

kernel-devel and kernel-headers packages versions do not match the current kernel 

version (2.6.18-448.4.1.el5.lve0.8.69), they are currently at 2.6.18-448.16.1.el5.lve0.8.70. 

Try to install kernel devel, here is an example below.

#yum install kernel-devel-2.6.18-448.4.1.el5.lve0.8.69

error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-

Failed:

========================================================
You can see that it is falied to install and throwing error cpio:stat.


So we need either upgrade the kernel to 2.6.18-448.16.1.el5.lve0.8.70 or install the 

appropriate kernel-headers and kernel-devel packages. Then install the module again
and everything should be OK.

If you are unable to resolve the issue please raise a ticket with support team.
