Note:
----
The CPI Installer of this patch was updated on Dec. 6, 2016 to fixed the following issue.
Incident: 3893547
ONE_LINE_ABSTRACT:
Veritas product installation fails for the new operating system (OS) update
version since the installer cannot validate the correct version of dependency
Operating System (OS) rpms for the new OS update.

SYMPTOM:
Veritas product installation failed for the new OS update version.

DESCRIPTION:
During installation, the installer verifies the dependency rpms of OS for the
product. For the new OS update version, there is no defined
or set dependency rpms value. Hence, the product installation fails or the
installer displays incorrect versions of OS rpms.

RESOLUTION:
Set a default dependency OS rpms for each platform (RHEL6, RHEL7, SLES11, and
SLES12) and for each release. Remove the specific version for each rpm, just
keep the rpm name and architecture type, like: glibc.x86_64.

2. Untar sfha-rhel6.7_x86_64-Patch-6.2.1.100.tar.gz to /tmp/hf
    # mkdir /tmp/hf
    # cd /tmp/hf
    # gunzip /tmp/sfha-rhel6.7_x86_64-Patch-6.2.1.100.tar.gz
    # tar xf /tmp/sfha-rhel6.7_x86_64-Patch-6.2.1.100.tar
3. Install the hotfix(Please be noted that the installation of this P-Patch will cause downtime.)
    # pwd /tmp/hf
    # ./installSFHA621P1 [<host1> <host2>...]

You can also install this patch together with 6.2.1 maintenance release using Install Bundles
1. Download this patch and extract it to a directory
2. Change to the Veritas InfoScale 6.2.1 directory and invoke the installmr script
   with -patch_path option where -patch_path should point to the patch directory
    # ./installmr -patch_path [<path to this patch>] [<host1> <host2>...]

Install the patch manually:
--------------------------
Perform the following steps on the node on which this patch is being applied:
1. Take backup of your configurations
2. Stop VCS
3. Install the patch
4. Restart VCS on the node

Stopping VCS on the cluster node
--------------------------------

1. Ensure that the "/opt/VRTSvcs/bin" directory is included in your PATH
   environment variable so that you can execute all the VCS commands. Refer 
   to Veritas Cluster Server Installation Guide for more information.

2. Freeze all the service groups persistently.
        # haconf -makerw
        # hagrp -freeze [group] -persistent

3. If the cluster is writable, you may close the configuration before stopping the cluster. 
    Stop the cluster on this node:
        # haconf -dump -makero

   run the following command:
        # hastop -local
    
   Verify that the cluster is stopped by running the ha command:
    # hasys -state

   make sure that both had and hashadow processes are stopped. Also, stop the VCS CmdServer:
    # CmdServer -stop

4. Stop the cluster services in order:
    - For AMF:
    # /etc/init.d/amf stop
    - For VxFEN:
    # /etc/init.d/vxfen stop
    - For GAB:
    # /etc/init.d/gab stop
    - For LLT
    # /etc/init.d/llt stop
    
Note: Stop any other services depending on GAB

Installing the Patch
--------------------

1. Un-compress the downloaded patch from Symantec and change the directory to the uncompressed patch location.

    - For RAC:
    # rpm -Uvh VRTSdbac-6.2.0.100-RHEL6.x86_64.rpm

2. Run the following command to verify if the new patch has been installed:

    - For LLT:
        # rpm -q VRTSllt
    - For GAB:
        # rpm -q VRTSgab
    - For VxFEN:
        # rpm -q VRTSvxfen
    - For AMF:
        # rpm -q VRTSamf
    - For RAC:
        # rpm -q VRTSdbac

Re-starting the cluster services:
--------------------------------

1. To start the cluster services in order run the following command:
        - For LLT:
        # /etc/init.d/llt start
        - For GAB:

        - For VCS:
        # hastart
        # /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/CmdServer

2. Make VCS cluster writable:
         # haconf -makerw

3. Unfreeze all the groups:
         # hagrp -unfreeze [group] -persistent
         # haconf -dump -makero


REMOVING THE PATCH
------------------
Removal of the patch will result in removing the whole package
from the system/node. To go back to a previous installed version
of the package, you may need to re-install the package.
Run the following steps on the node where the patch is being uninstalled:

To remove the patch from a cluster node:
---------------------------------------------
1. Freeze all the service groups persistently.
        # haconf -makerw
        # hagrp -freeze [group] -persistent

2. Stop VCS on the node by running the following command:
    - Follow the stop sequence as mentioned in the PATCH INSTALLATION section.

3. Remove the patch by using the following command:
        - For LLT:
        # rpm -e VRTSllt
    - For GAB:
        # rpm -e VRTSgab
    - For VxFEN:
        # rpm -e VRTSvxfen
    - For AMF:
        # rpm -e VRTSamf

4. Verify that the patch has been removed from the system:
        - For LLT:
        # rpm -qa|grep VRTSllt
    - For GAB:
        # rpm -qa|grep VRTSgab
    - For VxFEN:
        # rpm -qa|grep VRTSvxfen
    - For AMF:
        # rpm -qa|grep VRTSamf
        
   Ensure that the package is not be displayed. This confirms that the package is removed.

5. Install the relevant package from the VCS base media. 
    Also refer to SORT for any applicable patches.

6. To start the cluster service, run the following command first on one node:
    - Follow the start sequence as mentioned in the PATCH INSTALLATION section.

7. Unfreeze all the groups.
         # hagrp -unfreeze [group] -persistent
         # haconf -dump -makero
