Red Hat 7 Kernel Update Breaks NNMi 10.40

Greetings everyone,

Been having an issue with Kernel Updates for Red Hat 7.  Been running nnmi10.40 on RH7 for months with no issues the working kernel was 3.10.0-693.5.2.e17.x86_64  this morning we updated the server which included new kernel 3.10.0-693.17.1.e17.x86_64  and now the processes will not start.

if we do a clean install on this new kernel everything works file but for some reason we have been unable to yum update the kernel on an existing system.
