3. Restarting VCS on the node.
Stopping VCS on the cluster node
--------------------------------
To stop VCS on the cluster node:
1. Ensure that the "/opt/VRTS/bin" directory is included in your PATH
   environment variable so that you can execute all the VCS commands.
   For more information, refer to the Veritas Cluster Server
   Installation Guide.
2. Verify that the version of VRTSvcs is 7.2 for Linux.
3. Freeze all the service groups persistently.
    # haconf -makerw
    # hagrp -freeze [group] -persistent
    # haconf -dump -makero
4. Stop the cluster on all nodes. If the cluster is writable, you may
   close the configuration before stopping the cluster.
    # haconf -dump -makero
   From any node, execute the following command.
    # hastop -all
    or
    # hastop -all -force
   Verify that the cluster is stopped on all nodes
   by running the 'ha' command.
    # hasys -state
   On all nodes, make sure that both had and hashadow processes are
   stopped.
5. Log in as the super user into the system where the patch is to be
   installed.
6. Run the preceding steps on all nodes in the VCS cluster.
Installing the Patch

-----------------------------------
1. To start the cluster services on all cluster
   nodes. Execute the following command first on one node:
    # hastart
   On all the other nodes, start VCS by executing the hastart command after the
   first node goes to LOCAL_BUILD or RUNNING state.
2. Unfreeze all the groups.
     # haconf -makerw
     # hagrp -unfreeze [group] -persistent
     # haconf -dump -makero
