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

Patch ID: 7.4.1.600

* 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.

* 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.

* 3972077 (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.

* 3973119 (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.

* 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.

* 3980944 (Tracking ID: 3981519)

SYMPTOM:
An uninstallation of InfoScale 7.4.1 using response files fails with an error:
CPI ERROR V-9-40-1582 Following edge server related entries are missing in response file. Please correct.
edgeserver_host
edgeserver_port

DESCRIPTION:
When you uninstall InfoScale using a response file, the installer checks whether the response file contains the edge server related entries. If these entries are not available in the response file, the uninstall operation fails with the following error:
CPI ERROR V-9-40-1582 Following edge server related entries are missing in response file. Please correct.
edgeserver_host
edgeserver_port
This issue occurs because the installer checks the availability of these entries in the response file while performing any operations using the response files. However, these entries are required only for the configure and upgrade operations.

RESOLUTION:
The installer is enhanced to check the availability of the edge server related entries in the response file only for the configure or upgrade operations.
