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

Patch ID: 7.3.0.200

* 3931023 (Tracking ID: 3864470)

SYMPTOM:
When the I/O fencing startup script starts, it tries to configure fencing. The
startup script exits if it there is any error in configuring the VxFEN module.

DESCRIPTION:
Any errors while trying to configuring VxFEN causes I/O fencing startup script
to exit the retry operation after a specific number of tries. If the errors get
resolved after the startup script has exited, you need to manually start the I/O
fencing program.

RESOLUTION:
When the I/O fencing program starts the vxfen init script waits indefinitely for
vxfenconfig utility to configure VxFEN module.
