SUMMARY OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------
Patch ID: 6.2.1.100
* 3864321 (3862933) On Solaris 11.2 SRU 8 or above with Asynchronous monitoring Framework (AMF) enabled, VCS agent processes may not respond or may encounter AMF errors during registration.


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

Patch ID: 6.2.1.100

* 3864321 (Tracking ID: 3862933)

SYMPTOM:
On Solaris 11.2 SRU 8 or above with Asynchronous Monitoring framework (AMF) enabled, VCS agent processes may not respond or may encounter AMF errors during registration.

DESCRIPTION:
For Solaris 11.2 from SRU 8 onward, kernel header is modified. AMF functionality is affected because of the changes in the kernel headers which can cause agent processes like Mount, Oracle, Netlistener and Process enabled with AMF functionality to hang or report error during AMF registration.

RESOLUTION:
The AMF code is modified to handle the changes in the kernel headers for Solaris 11.2 SRU 8 to address the issue during registration.

      during installation. If so happens follow the instructions of installer to reboot 
	  the system and start the installation again.
