III] INSTALLING THE PATCH
-----------------------
Perform the following steps on all the nodes in the cluster.
1. Verify that the version of VRTSvcs is 5.0 MP3 RP2 for Linux.
2. Freeze all the service groups persistently.
    # haconf -makerw
    # hagrp -freeze <group> -persistent
    # haconf -dump -makero
3. 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
4. Run the following command to change to the RPMs directory. For example:
    # cd <Location_of_the_RPM>
5. Run the following command to upgrade to 5.0 MP3 RP2 HF2:
   # rpm -Uvh VRTSvcs-5.0.30.23-MP3RP2HF2_<DIST>.<ARCH>.rpm
6. Verify that the patch has been installed.
   # rpm -q VRTSvcs
   The following information is displayed after successful patch installation:
   VRTSvcs-5.0.30.23-MP3RP2HF2_<DIST>
   where, DIST is either RHEL5
7. Repeat step 4, 5, and 6 on the all the nodes of the cluster.
8. 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.
9. Unfreeze all the groups.
     # haconf -makerw
     # hagrp -unfreeze <group> -persistent
     # haconf -dump -makero
IV] 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 VRTSvcs
3.  Verify that the package has been removed from each node.
     # rpm -qa | grep VRTSvcs
    The package VRTSvcs should not be displayed, which confirms that the
    package is removed.
