SUMMARY OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------
Patch ID: 5.26.0.1
* 3984224 (3983942) The NFS and the RVGPrimary agents failed to find their respective Perl modules.


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

Patch ID: 5.26.0.1

* 3984224 (Tracking ID: 3983942)

SYMPTOM:
The NFS and the RVGPrimary agents failed to find their respective Perl modules.

DESCRIPTION:
Recent changes to the VRTSperl module caused the current directory (denoted by ".") to be excluded from the search path environment variable, @INC. The NFS and the RVGPrimary agents failed to find their respective Perl modules, because they are located in the current directory of the respective agent. The current directory was excluded from the search list, because it was not present in the @INC variable.

RESOLUTION:
The directory paths for the NFS and the RVGPrimary agents are added in the @INC variable so that the respective agents can search those locations and find the required files.
