This patch fixes the following incidents:

Patch ID: Patch_6_1_07010_445_3956968

* 3956968 (Tracking ID: 3956286)

SYMPTOM:
Incorrect ArrayType and Provisioning information was displayed for an XSG1 array.

DESCRIPTION:
This issue occurs when an OceonStor model XSG1 array is used with SFW 6.1. The SCSI specification for the XSG1 model of the Huawei OceanStor array series was updated, but the correct values could not be fetched for the array type and the thin provisioning attributes. Therefore, incorrect values were displayed for these attributes.

RESOLUTION:
This hotfix addresses the issue by fetching the correct values for the array type and the thin provisioning attributes of Huawei OceanStor series array models.

FILE / VERSION:
vhuaweiap.sys / 6.1.07010.445
ddlprov.dll / 6.17010.445



INSTALLING THE PATCH
--------------------
This package contains self-extracting files that are specific to the processor architecture and operating system version.

Prerequisite
------------------------
If UAC is enabled, run the program or commands in the “Run as administrator” mode even if the logged-on user belongs to the local administrators group. Alternatively, log on as an domain administrator to perform the tasks.

Before installing this patch first we need to uninstall the existing vhuaweiap driver from the server. We can uninstall dsm using two methods 

Method 1: 
1. Go to Add Remove programs
2. Select the Product "Veritas Sotrage Foundation 6.1" and click the Change button
3. On the pop up windows select "Add or Remove" and click Next
4. In the Product options section expand the "DMP Device Specific Modules (DSMs)"
5. Uncheck the "HUAWEI S5300/S2300 array (VHUAWEIAP)" and click Next
6. Click on the OK button to continue and then click Next to continue the uninstallation 
7. Reboot the system

Method 2: 

1.    Go to %vmpath%VM5INF\MPIO 
2.    Run instdsm.exe -u vhuaweiap.inf 
3.    Reboot the 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.

5. To complete the hotfix installation, follow the instructions that are displayed at the command prompt.

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


REMOVING THE PATCH

Additional Notes
------------------------
- To confirm the installation of a hotfix, run the following command:
vxhf.exe /list

On server systems, vxhf.exe is located at:
"%programfiles(x86)%\Common Files\Veritas Shared\WxRTPrivates\<Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber> "

The output of this command lists the hotfixes installed on a system.

- The hotfix installer (vxhf.exe) creates and stores logs at:
"%allusersprofile%\Application Data\Veritas\VxHF"

- For general information about the hotfix installer (vxhf.exe), refer to the following technote:
