SUMMARY OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH

Patch ID: 7.3.1.1100
* 3989511 (3989510) The VCS agent for Oracle does not support Oracle 19c databases.


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

Patch ID: 7.3.1.1100

* 3989511 (Tracking ID: 3989510)

SYMPTOM:
The VCS agent for Oracle does not support Oracle 19c databases.

DESCRIPTION:
In case of non-CDB or CDB-only databases, the VCS agent for Oracle does not recognize that an Oracle 19c resource is intentionally offline after a graceful shutdown. This functionality is never supported for PDB-type databases.

RESOLUTION:
The agent is updated to recognize the graceful shutdown of an Oracle 19c resource as intentional offline in case of non-CDB or CDB-only databases. For details, refer to the article at: https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100046803.

   On any node, run the following command to stop the cluster:
   # hastop -all -force
5. Verify that the cluster is stopped on all nodes: 
   # hasys -state
6. On all nodes, make sure that both the had and hashadow processes are stopped.
