Symptoms:
PVKL_03842 :

(SYMANTEC Incident Number:1321146)
During Oracle Clusterware installation, the 
Oracle installer is unable to detect 
Veritas Cluster Server as a vendor 
clusterware and waits indefinitely for 
a default clusterware to start.

(SYMANTEC Incident Number:1322433)
After installing or upgrading the Oracle Clusterware 
and its binaries to version 10.2.0.4, the command 
"linkrac 10gR2" fails with the following error message:
ERROR: Oracle binary not linked with Veritas IPC library.

(SYMANTEC Incident Number:1322756)
Assigning long string values to the spfile parameter 
"instance_groups" causes the value to exceed the allocated 
18 bytes of space, resulting in a BAD TRAP panic.

(SYMANTEC Incident Number:1245398)
Occasionally, the PrivNIC agent is unable to fail over the 
IP address of the second private link to the first 
private link that is restored.

Defect Description:
PVKL_03842 :

(SYMANTEC Incident Number:1321146)
This issue arises because you have not updated the script 
$CRS_HOME/css/admin/init.cssd to enable Oracle Clusterware 
to detect Veritas Cluster Server as a vendor clusterware. 
As a result, Oracle Clusterware indefinitely waits for 
a default clusterware to start.

Resolution
This issue can be resolved by making manual patch updates 
to the init.cssd script. However, to avoid a manual update 
of the script, an alternative mechanism is used. The script 
clsinfo is now placed in the /opt/nmapi/nmapi2/bin directory. 
This change ensures that Oracle automatically detects the 
presence of Veritas Cluster Server as a vendor clusterware.

(SYMANTEC Incident Number:1322433)
The library format for the shared library, libskgxp, has 
changed from static to dynamic format in Oracle 10.2.0.4. 
As a result, the linkrac script is unable to locate the 
shared library and fails with the error message.

Resolution
The linkrac script is now modified to determine the format 
of the shared library that must be used with the 
installed version of Oracle.

(SYMANTEC Incident Number:1322756)
When you assign a value to the spfile parameter 
"instance_groups", Oracle appends this value to the 
SKGXN group_name. If the parameter value is a long string, 
it may lead to a buffer overflow resulting in 
a BAD TRAP panic of the system.

Resolution
A check has now been enforced on the length of the spfile 
parameter "instance_groups", to ensure that even if Oracle 
appends the "group_name" index, the length of the parameter 
value is within the allocated 18 bytes of space.

(SYMANTEC Incident Number:1245398)
When the first private link is removed or damaged, the 
interface is automatically stopped and the PrivNIC agent 
fails over the corresponding  IP address to the second 
private link. Later, when the first private link is restored, 
the PrivNIC agent tries to retrieve the IP address but is 
unsuccessful because the interface is non-functional.

Resolution
If the private IP address (configured in PrivNIC) is found 
on any interface with the down state, clear it. Thus the IP 
address can be assigned on the correct interface and can 
be enabled. This also protects against the private IP being 
configured on any other interface with down state and 
resulting into connection loss from the other nodes.
