INSTALLING THE PATCH ON CLIENT SYSTEMS
--------------------------------------

1. Log on as the superuser to the Veritas Application Director (VAD)
   client system where the patch will be installed.

2. Freeze all the service groups running on that system persistently:

   a. List all the service groups configured on that system and store 
      the list for later use:

      $ /opt/VRTSvad/bin/hagrp -list SystemList=~<system_name>

   b. For each service group listed in the output, enter:

      $ /opt/VRTSvad/bin/hagrp -freeze <group_name>

3. Bring down the VAD client on the system:

   $ /opt/VRTSvad/bin/hastop -client -local -force

4. Use the ps command to ensure that the VAD client daemon and all 
   agents have exited.

5. Remove the following packages using the appropriate package remove  
   command for the operating system:

   VRTSvadcd, VRTSvadc
6. Add the same packages from this patch using the appropriate 
   package add command for the operating system:

   VRTSvadcd, VRTSvadc

7. Bring up the VAD client on the system:

   $ /opt/VRTSvad/bin/hastart -client

8. After the VAD client has started, unfreeze the groups that you 
   froze in step 2:

   $ /opt/VRTSvad/bin/hagrp -unfreeze <group_name>
   $ /opt/VRTSvad/bin/hagrp -value <group_name> Frozen
   0  <== should be 0 and not 1

9. Ensure that the output from hastatus does not show any frozen groups 
   on this system:

   $ /opt/VRTSvad/bin/hastatus -summary


INSTALLING THE PATCH ON POLICY MASTER SYSTEMS
---------------------------------------------

1. Log on as the superuser to the Policy Master system where you will 
   install the patch.

2. Take the Policy Master service group offline and bring it up on 
   the second/failover Policy Master system: 

   # hastop -web
   # hastop -pm
   # hastop -db

3. Remove the following packages from the first system using 
   the appropriate package remove commands for the operating system:

   VRTSvadpm, VRTSvadc
4. Add the same packages from this patch to the first system using 
   the appropriate package add commands for the operating system:

   VRTSvadpm VRTSvadc 

5. Start the database:

   # hastart -db -sys <system>
