---------------------------------------

Patch ID: VRTSvxvm-7.0.1.100-SLES12

* 3872724 (Tracking ID: 3865904)

SYMPTOM:
The installation failed while installing VxVM 6.2.1 and 7.0.1 on 
SLES12SP1

# rpm -ivh VRTSvxvm-6.2.1.000-
SLES12.x86_64.rpm

warning: %post(VRTSvxvm-6.2.1.000-SLES12.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit 
status 1

DESCRIPTION:
Installation of VRTSvxvm patch version 6.2.1 and 7.0.1 failed on
SLES12SP1 due to change in kernel version.

RESOLUTION:
The VxVM package has been re-compiled with SLES12SP1 build environment.

* 3872726 (Tracking ID: 3845712)

SYMPTOM:
After booting through vxvm_root entry of the grub, Following message is 
seen at the console -
"/dev/disk/by-uuid/**UUID** doesn't exist."

DESCRIPTION:
This is because, when the VxVM-initrd image is created as part of root 
device encapsulation, the SWAP device has old Swap UUID and when vxvm 
creates swap-volumes, it uses new UUID for swap device, which will not 
be present in VxVM-initrd image. Dracut has checks for mapping of swap 
UUID to get the device-id while booting up, and it doesn't match with 
the UUID of swap device present in the VxVM-initrd image, hence this 
issue.

RESOLUTION:
Code changes are implemented so that UUID checks for swap device in 
dracut  passes properly.
