SUMMARY OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------

* 3568900 (3557192) The startup type of the VCS Authentication Service was set to Manual after installing a hotfix.


DETAILS OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------
This patch fixes the following Symantec incidents:

Patch ID: Patch_6_0_10027_3568900

* 3568900 (Tracking ID: 3557192)

SYMPTOM:
The startup type of the VCS Authentication Service was set to Manual after installing a hotfix on VCS for Windows 6.0.1 or SFWHA 6.0.1.

DESCRIPTION:
When you perform a fresh installation of VCS for Windows or SFW HA, the startup type of the VCS Authentication Service is Manual. This startup type is changed to Automatic when you configure a secure cluster. However, when you apply a hotfix to such a configuration, the hotfix installer restores the startup type of the service to Manual.

RESOLUTION:
This hotfix addresses the issue by updating the installer, so that the startup type of the VCS Authentication Service does not change when you apply any hotfix.

NOTE: This is a required hotfix. Do not uninstall this hotfix.

INSTALLING THE PATCH
--------------------
This package contains self-extracting files that are specific to the processor architecture and the operating system version on a system.
Download the appropriate hotfix executable to a temporary location on your system.
You can install this hotfix using the GUI or the CLI. Instructions for both these options are provided below.

To install the hotfix on server systems using the GUI
------------------------------------
1. Double-click the hotfix executable file to extract its contents to a default location on the cluster node.
By default, the files are extracted to:
"%programfiles(x86)%\Common Files\Veritas Shared\WxRTPrivates"

The Hotfix Installer Wizard is automatically launched after the files are extracted.

2. Click "Next" on the Welcome screen. 
The 'Hotfix Installation Task' screen lists the tasks that are performed by the installer.

3. Click "Install Hotfix" to begin the hotfix installation. 
The status of each installation task is updated as it completes.

4. After the tasks are complete, click "Next" and then click "Finish" to complete the installation process.

5. If this is a clustered configuration (VCS or MSCS), please perform steps 1-4 on all additional nodes in the cluster.


To install the hotfix on server systems using the CLI
---------------------------------------------
1. Navigate to the following location at the command prompt:
"C:\temp"

2. Run one of the following commands to extract the hotfix files to the default location:
<Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber_OS_Platform>.exe /x
or
<Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber_OS_Platform>.exe /extract

3. Navigate to the default location where the hotfix files are extracted.
By default, the files are extracted to: 
"%programfiles(x86)%\Common Files\Veritas Shared\WxRTPrivates\<Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber>"

4. Run the following command to install the hotfix:
VxHF.exe /install:<Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber> /silent

Here, <Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber> is the name of the hotfix file excluding the OS, platform, and .exe extension.

5. Follow the instructions displayed in the command prompt to complete the hotfix installation.

6. If this is a clustered configuration (VCS or MSCS), please perform steps 1-5 on all additional nodes in the cluster.


REMOVING THE PATCH

Additional Notes
