Windows 2012 X64
Windows Server 2012 R2 X64



BASE PRODUCT VERSIONS FOR THE PATCH
-----------------------------------
   * Symantec Cluster Server 6.1
   * Symantec Storage Foundation HA 6.1


SUMMARY OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------
Patch ID: Patch_6_1_00028_3910006
* 3910006 (3910307) Issue 1: The status of a Symantec Cluster Server (VCS) cluster is displayed incorrectly on the Veritas Operations Manager interface.
Issue 2: CP4 and CP5 post-install tasks take a long time to complete or fail.


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

Patch ID: Patch_6_1_00028_3910006

* 3910006 (Tracking ID: 3910307)

SYMPTOM:
Issue 1: Even though a cluster is online and active, its information is displayed incorrectly on the Veritas Operations Manager interface.
Issue 2: After any one of the following patches is installed, the VCS engine fails to start on a local node:
- Hotfix_6_1_00018_3856596
- CP4  
- CP5

DESCRIPTION:
Issue 1: Veritas Operations Manager runs the HA commands to discover a cluster and its details. The HA commands from Veritas Operations Manager  work with the default %VCS_HOME% path, so they fail if VCS is installed at a custom location. Thus, when VCS is installed at a custom location, Veritas Operations Manager is unable identify its correct status.
Issue 2: An error message in the engine_A.log file indicates that the local node has left the cluster due to a difference in the VCS engine version. This issue occurs due to a version mismatch between the VCS engine on the upgraded node and the non-upgraded nodes. The engine version on the upgraded nodes is incorrectly set to 7.0.

RESOLUTION:
Issue 1: This patch addresses the issue by updating the HA executables to identify the home directory location from the appropriate registry key instead of the default %VCS_HOME% path.
Issue 2: This patch corrects the VCS engine version that was shipped in the hotfix 'Hotfix_6_1_00018_3856596' and the cumulative patches CP4 and CP5 from 7.0 to 6.1.

NOTE: You do not need to restart the system after installing this patch.

INSTALLING THE PATCH
--------------------
This package contains self-extracting files that are specific to the processor architecture and operating system version.
Download the appropriate hotfix executable to a temporary location on your system.
You can install this hotfix using the GUI or the CLI. Instructions for both these options are provided below.


To install the hotfix on server systems using the GUI
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Double-click the hotfix executable file to extract its contents to a default location on the cluster node.
By default, the files are extracted to:
"%programfiles(x86)%\Common Files\Veritas Shared\WxRTPrivates"

The Hotfix Installer Wizard is automatically launched after the files are extracted.

2. Click "Next" on the Welcome screen. 
The 'Hotfix Installation Task' screen lists the tasks that are performed by the installer.

3. Click "Install Hotfix" to begin the hotfix installation. 
The status of each installation task is updated as it completes.

4. After the tasks are complete, click "Next" and then click "Finish" to complete the installation process.

5. If this is a clustered configuration (VCS or MSCS), perform steps 1-4 on all additional nodes in the cluster.


To install the hotfix on server systems using the CLI
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Navigate to the following location at the command prompt:
"C:\temp"

2. Run one of the following commands to extract the hotfix files to the default location:
<Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber_OS_Platform> .exe /x
or
<Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber_OS_Platform> .exe /extract

3. Navigate to the default location where the hotfix files are extracted.
By default, the files are extracted to:
"%programfiles(x86)%\Common Files\Veritas Shared\WxRTPrivates\<Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber> "

4. Run the following command to install the hotfix:
VxHF.exe /install:<Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber>  /silent
Here, <Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber> is the name of the hotfix file excluding the OS, platform, and .exe extension.
