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

Patch ID: 7.4.1.200

* 3969748 (Tracking ID: 3969438)

SYMPTOM:
Rolling upgrade fails with the error:
CPI ERROR V-9-0-0
0 Cannot execute _cmd_vxdg list | _cmd_grep enabled | _cmd_awk '{print $1}' on system_name with undefined sys->{padv}

DESCRIPTION:
The following prompt appears as part of the rolling upgrade process: Enter the system name of the cluster on which you would like to perform rolling upgrade [q,?] After the prompt, the installer suggests the names of systems on which to perform the upgrade. You may select one of the suggested system names, or you may type a system name, and then press Enter. Either way, if you specify the system name of the local node, the installer displays the following error and exits.
CPI ERROR V-9-0-0
0 Cannot execute _cmd_vxdg list | _cmd_grep enabled | _cmd_awk '{print $1}' on system_name with undefined sys->{padv}

RESOLUTION:
The installer is enhanced to verify if the fss disk group is available. This enhancements was made for the Linux, Solaris, and Aix platforms.

* 3979596 (Tracking ID: 3979603)

SYMPTOM:
CPI assumes that the third digit in an InfoScale 7.4.1 version indicates a patch version, and not a GA version. Therefore, it upgrades the packages from the patch only and does not upgrade the base packages.

DESCRIPTION:
To compare product versions and to set the type of installation, CPI compares the currently installed version with the target version to be installed. However, instead of comparing all the digits in a version, it incorrectly compares only the first two digits. In this case, CPI compares 7.4 with 7.4.1.xxx, and finds that the first 2 digits match exactly. Therefore, it assumes that the base version is already installed and then installs the patch packages only.

RESOLUTION:
This hotfix updates the CPI to recognize InfoScale 7.4.1 as a base version and 7.4.1.xxx (for example) as a patch version. After you apply this patch, CPI can properly upgrade the base packages first, and then proceed to upgrade the packages that are in the patch.
