2.  Verify that /opt/VRTS/bin is in your PATH so you can execute all the 
    product commands. Refer to the VCS Installation Guide for more 
    information.

3.  Verify that the version of VRTSvcs is 5.0 MP3. Here is the output of rpm -qi.

4. Freeze all the service groups persistently. 
    # haconf -makerw
    # hagrp -freeze <group> -persistent

5. Stop the cluster on all nodes. If the cluster is writable, you may
   close the configuration before stopping the cluster.

	# haconf -dump -makero

   From one node, execute the following command.

	# hastop -all

   Verify that the cluster is stopped on all nodes 
   by running the ha command.

	# hasys -state

   On all nodes, make sure that both had & hashadow processes are stopped.
   Also, stop the VCS CmdServer on all nodes. 
   Determine the PID of the CmdServer and enter:
        # CmdServer -stop

6. Change directory to the patch location.

7. On each node in the cluster, install the patch that corresponds to the 
    version of the operating system running. We need to use -U and not -i 
    as it is rpm upgrade.: 
    
	# rpm -Uvh <patch.rpm>

	For RHEL4, install VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_RHEL4.i686.rpm
	For RHEL5, install VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_RHEL5.i686.rpm
	For SLES9, install VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_SLES9.i586.rpm
	For SLES10, install VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_SLES10.i586.rpm
	

8. After installation is complete, verify that the patch has been installed. 
   For example on each RHEL4 system, type:   
    
	# rpm -qa  | grep VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_RHEL4

   You will see output like,
	VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_RHEL4

9. At this time, you can start cluster services on all cluster nodes.
    On one node, please verify that VCS configuration is valid.

	# hacf -verify config

    If the configuration is valid, start VCS:

	# hastart

    On all other nodes, start VCS by issuing hastart once the
    first node goes to LOCAL_BUILD or RUNNING state.

10. Unfreeze all the groups.
    # haconf -makerw
    # hagrp -unfreeze <group> -persistent
    # haconf -dump -makero
