Fixes Applied for Products:
---------------------------
Veritas Cluster Server for SOL


Install/Uninstall Instructions:
-------------------------------

BEFORE GETTING STARTED
----------------------

This patch is for VCS5.0MP1, VCS5.0MP3, VCS5.0MP3RP1 installations. The patch fixes
a number of problems with the VCS agent framework and one problem with the 
Proxy agent as listed above.
If you are running any VCS version below VCS5.0MP1, you will have to upgrade
to VCS5.0MP1 before applying this patch.
If you are already running VCS5.0MP1 (or above), you can apply this point-patch directly
(guidelines below).

NOTE: This patch should only be applied on top of VCS5.0MP1, VCS5.0MP3 or VCS5.0MP3RP1.
VCS 5.0MP3RP2 (when available) will obsolete this patch. VCS 5.0MP3RP2 can be applied on
top of this patch as VCS5.0MP3RP2 would contain either the same or a newer version of the
binary files contained in this patch.
If VCS5.0MP3RP2 is available, one should directly apply VCS5.0MP3RP2 on top
of VCS5.0GA or VCS5.0MP1 and does not need to apply this point-patch.

This patch contains two binary files:
   
	libvcsagfw.so.2
	ProxyAgent


INSTALLING THE VCS PATCH
------------------------

To install the patch:

1.  Make the VCS configuration writable. On any system, type:

      # haconf -makerw

2.  Freeze all service groups. On any system, type:

      # hagrp -freeze <service_group> -persistent

3.  Verify that service groups are frozen. On any system, type:

      # hastatus -sum

5.  Save this configuration change to the main.cf file with the groups frozen.
    On any system, type:

      # haconf -dump -makero

6.  Stop VCS. On any system, type:

      # hastop -all -force
        
7.  Check that VCS has shut down. On each system, type:

      # ps -ef | grep had
      
8. Save the old agent framework library and ProxyAgent binary:

      # cp /usr/lib/libvcsagfw.so.2 /usr/lib/libvcsagfw.so.2.pre_e1668609
      # cp /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Proxy/ProxyAgent /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Proxy/ProxyAgent.pre_e1668609

9. Install the patched agent framework library to /usr/lib/ and patched agent to /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Proxy/

      # cd <patch_location>
      # cp ./libvcsagfw.so.2 /usr/lib/libvcsagfw.so.2
      # cp ./ProxyAgent /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Proxy/ProxyAgent

12. Verify that the patch has installed and the old agent framework library and ProxyAgent
    are backed up.

      # ls -l /usr/lib/libvcsagfw.*
      # ls -l /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Proxy/

13. Restart VCS. On each system in the cluster, type:

      # hastart      

14. Verify all resources have been probed. On any system, type:

      # hastatus -summary

15. Make the configuration writable and unfreeze all service groups. 
    On any system, type:

      # haconf -makerw

      # hagrp -unfreeze <service_group> -persistent

16. Save the changes to the configuration file (main.cf). On any system, type:

      # haconf -dump -makero         


REMOVING THE PATCH
-------------------

To remove the patch from a running VCS cluster:

1.  Make the VCS configuration writable. On any system, type:

      # haconf -makerw

2.  Freeze the service groups. On any system, type:

      # hagrp -freeze <service_group> -persistent
      
3.  Save the configuration file (main.cf) with the groups frozen. 
    On any system, type:

      # haconf -dump -makero
      
4.  Stop VCS. On any system, type:

      # hastop -all -force

5.  Uninstall the patch by copying back the old/saved agent framework library and ProxyAgent binary:

      # cp /usr/lib/libvcsagfw.so.2.pre_e1668609 /usr/lib/libvcsagfw.so.2
      # cp /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Proxy/ProxyAgent.pre_e1668609 /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Proxy/ProxyAgent
   
6.  Restart VCS. On each system in the cluster, type:

      # hastart         
 
7. Verify all resources have been probed. On any system, type:

      # hastatus -summary

8. Make the configuration writable and unfreeze all service groups. 
    On any system, type:

      # haconf -makerw

      # hagrp -unfreeze <service_group> -persistent

9. Save this change to the configuration file (main.cf). On any system, type:

      # haconf -dump -makero
