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

Patch ID: 6.0.500.400

* 3799901 (Tracking ID: 3451730)

SYMPTOM:
Installation of VRTSodm, VRTSvxfs in a zone fails when
running zoneadm -z Zoneattach -U

DESCRIPTION:
When you upgrade a zone using attach U option, the checkinstall
script is executed. There were certain zone-irrelevant commands (which should
not be executed during attach) in the checkinstall script which failed the
installation of VRTSodm, VRTSvxfs.

RESOLUTION:
Code is added in the postinstall script to fix the checkinstall script.

Patch ID: 6.0.500.100

* 3515842 (Tracking ID: 3481825)

SYMPTOM:
The panic stack is like this:
unix:panicsys
unix:vpanic_common
unix:panic
unix:die
unix:trap
unix:ktl0
zfs:dmu_objset_spa
zvol_ioctl
specfs:spec_ioctl
genunix:fop_ioctl
odm:odm_raw_check
odm:odm_identify
odm:odmioctl
genunix:fop_ioctl

DESCRIPTION:
The odm_raw_check()function calls fop_ioctl() without first opening the zvol folder.

RESOLUTION:
Symantec has disabled Oracle Disk Manager (ODM)for Solaris on non-VxVM raw devices.

* 3544831 (Tracking ID: 3525858)

SYMPTOM:
The system panics in the odmmount_getzid() function with the following stack: 

odm:odmmount_getzid ()
odm:odmroot_zone ()
odm:odmroot()
genunix:fsop_root(
genunix:lookuppnvp()
genunix:lookuppnat()
genunix:lookupnameat()
genunix:cstatat_getvp()
genunix:cstatat64_32()
unix:syscall_trap32()

DESCRIPTION:
Whenever /dev/odm is mounted inside a zone, ODM maintains information for that mount in a linked list of elements - each element representing a zone mount. This linked list gets corrupted if zones are unmounted simultaneously, due to a race condition. When such a list is referred to during subsequent zone mounts, it leads to panic.

RESOLUTION:
Symantec has fixed the race condition in odmmount_putentry() called from the  ODM zone umount code paths.

Patch ID: 6.0.500.000

* 3322294 (Tracking ID: 3323866)

SYMPTOM:
Some ODM operations may fail with the following error:
ODM ERROR V-41-4-1-328-22 Invalid argument

DESCRIPTION:
On systems having heavy database activity using ODM some operations may fail an error. This is a corner case and it occurs when a new task enters in ODM. To avoid deadlocks ODM maintains two lists of tasks viz. hold list and deny list. All the active tasks are maintained in the hold list and the task that are being exited from ODM are stored in the deny list. The error is returned when the  ODM PID structure gets re-used for a PID that is still being exited from the ODM and is there in the deny list in that case ODM don't allow the task to enter in the ODM and above error is returned.

RESOLUTION:
The code is modified such as to add an extra check while adding a new task in ODM to avoid returning the error in such scenarios.

Patch ID: 6.0.300.000

* 3018873 (Tracking ID: 3018869)

SYMPTOM:
fsadm command shows that the mountpoint is not a vxfs file system

DESCRIPTION:
The Solaris11 update1 has some changes in function fstatvfs() [VFS layer] which
breaks VxFS's previous assumptions. The statvfs.f_basetype gets populated with
some garbage value instead of "vxfs". So, during the fsadm, when we check for
the file system type, the check fails and so we get the error.

RESOLUTION:
Made changes to fetch correct value for fstype using OS provided API's so that
the statvfs.f_basetype field gets valid i.e. "vxfs" value.
