upgrade Phase1.

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

Patch ID: 7.2.0.600

* 3904944 (Tracking ID: 3904943)

SYMPTOM:
The installer fails with the error message 'No padv object defined for padv 
SLESx8664 for system on Sles12 SP2.

DESCRIPTION:
The installer fails with the error message 'No padv object defined for padv 
SLESx8664 for system' on Sles12 SP2.

RESOLUTION:
The installer code is modified to resolve the issue.

* 3944949 (Tracking ID: 3944951)

SYMPTOM:
If the vxcloud service (vxvm-vxcloud) is running, an attempt to upgrade
the product from 6.2.1 to 7.2 is unsuccessful.

DESCRIPTION:
The vxspec, vxdmp, and vxio modules cannot be unloaded while
vxcloudd is running. The InfoScale 7.2 CPI does not stop vxcloudd, and therefore
an upgrade performed using this installer fails.

RESOLUTION:
This hotfix updates the CPI to fix this issue so that the 7.2
installer stops vxcloudd before proceeding the upgrade tasks.

* 3951378 (Tracking ID: 3951376)

SYMPTOM:
When you provide the "-patch_path" argument to the installer during a
rolling upgrade, the CPI performs a patch upgrade instead of first performing
phase 2 of the rolling upgrade.

DESCRIPTION:
This issue occurs because the CPI fails to detect the installed
product state correctly during the rolling upgrade phase 2 checks. It then
directly proceeds to perform the patch upgrade tasks without first performing
phase 2 of the rolling upgrade. For example: If CPI finds that the InfoScale 7.2
VRTSvxvm package is installed on the system, it assumes that InfoScale 7.2 is
already installed. It then proceeds to perform the patch upgrade even though
phase 2 of the rolling upgrade from (say) SFHA 6.2.1 is not yet complete.

RESOLUTION:
The installer is updated to correctly detect the installed product
state during the rolling upgrade phase 2 checks, and accordingly proceed to
perform either phase 2 or the patch upgrades.

* 3954439 (Tracking ID: 3954440)

SYMPTOM:
When a patch is installed as a part of rolling upgrade Phase1, the rolling
upgrade fails with the error:
A more recent version of InfoScale Enterprise, 7.2.0.xxx, is already
installed.

DESCRIPTION:
When a patch is installed as a part of rolling upgrade Phase1, the kernel
package version might get upgraded to a version that is higher than the version
considered for upgrade. 

This results in failure of the rolling upgrade with the error:  A
more recent version of InfoScale Enterprise, 7.2.0.xxx, is already
installed.

RESOLUTION:
The CPI rolling upgrade prerequisites are modified to continue even if a patch
for InfoScale product is installed as part of Rolling upgrade Phase1.

* 4008581 (Tracking ID: 4008578)

SYMPTOM:
Even though a cluster node may have a fully qualified hostname, the product installer trims this value and uses the shorter hostname for the cluster configuration.

DESCRIPTION:
The name of a cluster node may be set to a fully qualified hostname, for example, somehost.example.com. However, by default, the product installer trims this value and uses the shorter hostname (for example, somehost) for the cluster configuration.

RESOLUTION:
This hotfix updates the installer to allow the use of the new "-fqdn" option. If this option is specified, the installer uses the fully qualified hostname for cluster configuration. Otherwise, the installer continues with the default behavior.

* 4037627 (Tracking ID: 4033988)

SYMPTOM:
The product installer displays the following error message after the precheck and does not allow you to proceed with the installation:
The higher version of <package_name> is already installed on <system_name>

DESCRIPTION:
The product installer compares the versions of the packages in an Infoscale patch bundle with those of the packages that are installed on a system. If a more recent version of any of the packages in the bundle is found to be already installed on the system, the installer displays an error. It does not allow you to proceed further with the installation.

RESOLUTION:
The product installer is updated to allow the installation of an Infoscale patch bundle that may contain older versions of some packages. Instead of an error message, the installer now displays a warning message and lets you proceed with the installation.

* 4037628 (Tracking ID: 4027759)

SYMPTOM:
The product installer installs lower versions packages if multiple patch bundles are specified using the patch path options in the incorrect order.

DESCRIPTION:
The product installer expects that the patch bundles, if any, are specified in the lower-to-higher order. Consequently, the installer always overrides the package version from the available package in the last patch bundle in which it exists. If patch bundles are not specified in the expected order, installer installs last available version for a component package.

RESOLUTION:
To address this issue, the product installer is updated to correctly identify the higher package version before installing the patch bundles. It does so regardless of the order in which the patch bundles are specified.
