I] BEFORE GETTING STARTED
------------------------
This is a patch for VCS Bundled Agents 5.0 MP3 RP2 on Linux. You must
upgrade to VCS 5.0 MP3 RP2 before applying this patch.

The patch includes the following rpms:

	VRTSvcsag: Veritas Cluster Server Bundled Agents by Symantec


II] INSTALLING THE PATCH
-----------------------
Perform the following steps on all the nodes in the cluster.

1. Ensure that "/opt/VRTS/bin" directory is included in your PATH
   environment variable so you can execute all the VCS commands. Refer
   to Veritas Cluster Server Installation Guide for more information.

2. Verify that the version of VRTSvcs is 5.0 MP3 RP2 for Linux.

3. Freeze all the service groups persistently.

    # haconf -makerw
    # hagrp -freeze <group> -persistent
    # haconf -dump -makero

4. Stop the cluster on all nodes. If the cluster is writable, you may
   close the configuration before stopping the cluster.

    # haconf -dump -makero

   From any node, execute the following command.

    # hastop -all

    or

    # hastop -all -force

   Verify that the cluster is stopped on all nodes 
   by running the ha command.

    # hasys -state

   On all nodes, make sure that both had and hashadow processes are
   stopped.
   Also, stop the VCS CmdServer on all nodes.

    # CmdServer -stop

5. Run the following command to change to the RPMs directory. For example:

    # cd <Location_of_the_RPM>

6. Run the following command to upgrade to 5.0 MP3 RP2 HF2:

   # rpm -Uvh VRTSvcsag-5.0.30.22-MP3RP2HF2_<DIST>.<ARCH>.rpm

7. Verify that the patch has been installed.

   # rpm -q VRTSvcsag

   The following information is displayed after successful patch installation:

   VRTSvcsag-5.0.30.22-MP3RP2HF2_<DIST>

   where, DIST is either RHEL4, RHEL5, SLES9 or SLES10.

8. Repeat step 5, 6, and 7 on the all the nodes of the cluster.

9. At this time, you can start the cluster services on all cluster nodes. First
   start VCS on one node:

    # hastart

   On all the other nodes, start VCS by issuing hastart after the first node
   goes to LOCAL_BUILD or RUNNING state.

10. Unfreeze all the groups.

     # haconf -makerw
     # hagrp -unfreeze <group> -persistent
     # haconf -dump -makero


III]  REMOVING THE PACKAGE
--------------------------
1. Make sure that VCS is not running in the cluster.

    # hastop -all

    or

    # hastop -all -force

2. Remove the package from each node using the rpm command:

    # rpm -e VRTSvcsag

3.  Verify that the package has been removed from each node.

     # rpm -qa | grep VRTSvcsag 

    The package VRTSvcsag should not be displayed, which confirms that the
    package is removed.
