---------------------------------------
This patch fixes the following incidents:

Patch ID: 7.4.0.700

* 3960118 (Tracking ID: 3960116)

SYMPTOM:
Installer reports incorrect licensing status as "Unlicensed" for InfoScale 7.4 even when the systems are properly licensed and also fails to download the available Maintenance or Patch releases.

DESCRIPTION:
For InfoScale version 7.4,  when you use the installer command with the -version option or the showversion script in the /opt/VRTS/install directory, the installer reports incorrect licensing status as "Unlicensed" even when the systems are properly licensed. 
This is due to incorrect release version string set in the installer. Later, installer is unable the get the path of the repository where the Maintenance or Patch releases should be downloaded.

RESOLUTION:
The installer is enhanced to fetch the correct licensing status by setting correct release version string. It is also enhanced to either use /opt/VRTS/repository as the default repository or to accept a different location to download the suggested releases.

* 3969318 (Tracking ID: 3969113)

SYMPTOM:
The 'pkg list <pkg name>' command to check the uucp and bourne package fail for solaris 11.4 and later versions

DESCRIPTION:
In Solaris 11.4 or later, the /usr/sunos/bin/sh file is part of the bourne package and the /var/spool/locks directory is part of the uucp package. For the prior Solaris releases, this file and directory were included in the core-os package. As these files are no longer available in the core-os package, the 'pkg list <pkg name>' command to check the uucp and bourne package fail for solaris 11.4 and later versions.

RESOLUTION:
The installer is enhanced to use the 'pkg search -l <file or directory>' command to identify if the file or directory is available in the installed packages. If it is not available, the installer prompts the user to install the required packages(uucp/bourne). For the versions prior to Solaris 11.4, the core-os package is available and the installer continues without failing.

* 3970852 (Tracking ID: 3970848)

SYMPTOM:
The CPI configures the product even if you use the -install option while installing the InfoScale Foundation version 7.x or later.

DESCRIPTION:
When you use the CPI to install InfoScale Foundation, the ./installer option performs the installation and configurations by default. If you use the -install option, the installer must only install the packages and not perform the configuration. However, in case of InfoScale Foundation version 7.x or later, when you use the -install option, the installer continues to configure the product after installation.

RESOLUTION:
For InfoScale Foundation, the CPI is modified so that the -install option only install the packages. Users can then use the -configure option to configure the product.

* 3972078 (Tracking ID: 3972075)

SYMPTOM:
When the -patch_path option is used, the installer fails to install the VRTSveki patch.

DESCRIPTION:
When the VRTSveki patch is present in a patch bundle, if the GA installer is run with the -patch_path option, it fails to install the VRTSveki patch. Consequently, the installation of any dependent VxVM patches also fails. This issue occurs because the veki module, and any other modules that depend on it, are loaded immediately after the packages are installed. When a patch installation starts, the Veki patch attempts to unload the veki module, but fails, because the dependent modules have a hold on it.

RESOLUTION:
This hotfix updates CPI so that if the -patch_path option is used when a VRTSveki patch is present in the bundle, it first unloads the dependent modules and then unloads the veki module.

* 3973116 (Tracking ID: 3973114)

SYMPTOM:
While upgrading Infoscale 7.4, the installer fails to stop vxspec, vxio and vxdmp as
vxcloudd is still running.

DESCRIPTION:
As the vxcloudd is running it fails to stop vxspec, vxio and vxdmp.

RESOLUTION:
Modified the CPI code to stop vxcloudd before stopping vxspec, vxio and vxdmp.

* 3976004 (Tracking ID: 3975999)

SYMPTOM:
On SUSE 12, the installer -configure command fails to configure SF

DESCRIPTION:
On SUSE 12, if you install InfoScale using the '-install' and the '-patch_path' options together and then use the -configure option to configure SF, the configuration fails. This happens because the patch bundle installer sets the --noscripts arguments while installing VRTSxvm rpm. When the installer is run with the '-install' and '-patch_path' option, it does not run the install scripts for installing VRTSxvm rpm. Consequently, the 'install-db' file is not created. This file is used to identify whether SF is configured or not. When you run the installer with '-configure' option and select SF to configure, it detects that SF is configured and shows the following error: "CPI ERROR V-9-30-1141 Reconfiguring from SF to SF is not allowed".

RESOLUTION:
The post-installation scripts of the patch bundle installer are modified to create the 'install-db' file when the installer is run with the '-install' and '-patch_path' option.

* 3980563 (Tracking ID: 3980562)

SYMPTOM:
CPI does not perform the installation when two InfoScale patch paths are provided, and displays the following message: "CPI ERROR V-9-30-1421 The patch_path and patch2_path patches are both for the same package: VRTSinfoscale".

DESCRIPTION:
CPI checks whether the patches mentioned with the patch_path option are the same. Even though the patch bundles are different, they have the same starting string, VRTSinfoscale, followed by the version number. CPI does not compare the version part of the patch bundle name, and so it incorrectly assumes them to be the same. Therefore, CPI does not install the patch bundles simultaneously, and instead, displays the inappropriate error.

RESOLUTION:
CPI is updated to check the complete patch bundle name including the version, for example: VRTSinfoscale740P1100. Now, CPI can properly differentiate between the patches and begin the installation without displaying the inappropriate error.
