RPM Install error: is needed by

I have an application rpm which when installed is failing to get installed with error
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by testSam-4.7.x86_64 is needed by testSam-4.7.x86_64 is needed by testSam-4.7.x86_64

The system has RHEL 7.3 with glibc 2.17.

# cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.3 (Maipo)

# rpm -qf /lib64/

So we see the application built using older glibc(it needs glibc between 2.0 and 2.1) is failing to run on a system having newer glibc 2.17.

How to get rid of this issue and run the application on systems having newer glibc?
I guess there are some glibc backward compatibility packs which will help us run such applications on systems having newer glibc.
From where can I download such compatibility packs?

GLIBC_2.0 seems no longer supported in RH 7:
nm /lib64/ | grep GLIBC_2.0

Maybe your application rpm is for RH 5 / CentOS 5?
