writes from multiple clients.
Patch ID: 6.2.1.200

node that requested the operation and the size of CPS log file should be more.
Patch ID: 6.2.1.100
* 3919629 (3920058) CP server does not boot up if it starts on a port which is
not in the dynamic port range (49152-65535).


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

Patch ID: 6.2.1.300

* 3926490 (Tracking ID: 3930936)

SYMPTOM:
The CP Server logs errors about operation failures when multiple clients of CP
server run similar commands in parallel. These operation errors are flagged as
CRITICAL.

DESCRIPTION:
When clients of CP servers run multiple commands in parallel, sometimes, such
operations return the value SQLITE_BUSY to the client. The operation returns
SQLITE_BUSY, because another operation has locked the database. In such case
where operation fails due to database lock being busy the server does not 
retry
these commands.

RESOLUTION:
The VxCPS program is modified to handle a SQLITE_BUSY value and the program
retries the operation on the server.

Patch ID: 6.2.1.200

* 3930633 (Tracking ID: 3862152)

SYMPTOM:
The messages logging cps actions at the CP server end do not show which node has
requested the actions. The size of CP server log files could only be increased
up to 4 GB which is a problem when the CP server has many clients.

DESCRIPTION:
The Log messages for certain cps actions do not log the peer node that requested
the action due to the logging being reduced at the cp server end. The size of CP
server log files could only be increased to up to 4 GB that led to loss of logs.

RESOLUTION:
The logging at the CP server is reduced.The CPS code is modified to log the peer
node name when any actions are requested for the CP server and CPS log file size
can be increased to up to 16 GB

Patch ID: 6.2.1.100

* 3919629 (Tracking ID: 3920058)

SYMPTOM:
CP server does not boot up if it starts on a port which is not in the 
dynamic port range (49152-65535).

DESCRIPTION:
If you attempt to start the CP server on a valid port not in the TCP dynamic port
range (49152-65535), the CP server configuration fails. Restrictions in the
VxCPS code does not allow configuring CP server on a port that is not in the
dynamic port range.

RESOLUTION:
The VxCPS code is modified to allow the configuration if the TCP port on which
CP server starts is in the range 1-65535.
