VERITAS Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions 4.1
Maintenance Pack 2 Linux
This document contains information about installing patch updates for products in the VERITAS Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions 4.1 Maintenance Pack 2 (MP2) release. Patch update packages for the following products are on the accompanying 4.1 Maintenance Pack 2 software discs:
VERITAS Cluster Server
VERITAS Volume Replicator
VERITAS Storage Foundation?/Storage Foundation HA
VERITAS Storage Foundation Cluster File System/Storage Foundation Cluster File System HA
VERITAS Storage Foundation for Oracle RAC
April 2006 50-000811-011
VERITAS 4.1 release products must be installed before updating them with Maintenance Pack 2 packages. If you have not yet installed a VERITAS 4.1 product, see the VERITAS Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions Getting Started Guide for the location of release notes and installation instructions. This guide is available in PDF format on the VERITAS 4.1 software discs.
If you already have the 4.1 release of any VERITAS product installed on your system, see “Installing Updates” on page 8 for the location of Maintenance Pack 2 patch installation instructions for the listed VERITAS products.
Maintenance Pack Disc Contents
There are two Maintenance Pack 2 discs.
Disc 1
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 i686
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Intel IA64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 x86_64
Disc 2
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 i586 SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 Intel IA64 SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 x86_64

4.1 Maintenance Pack 2 Supported Linux Distributions
The following two tables list VERITAS products and the Linux distributions, chip architectures, and kernels on which they operate.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (RHEL 4) Update 1, Update 2, and Update 3
i686 ia64 x86_64 VERITAS Product up smp hugemem smp large-smp up smp largesmp
Storage Foundation
QuickStart, Standard,
Enterprise, & Enterprise HA
Storage Foundation for DB2

VERITAS Cluster Server
VERITAS Volume Replicator
Storage Foundation Cluster
File System (SFCFS)

Storage Foundation for
Oracle RAC (SFRAC)
Note VERITAS products will operate on subsequent kernel and patch releases provided the operating systems maintain kernel ABI (application binary interface) compatibility. The largesmp kernel is supported only on RHEL 4 Update 3.
For the latest SFRAC support for Oracle releases, see the 4.1 MP2 Storage Foundation for Oracle RAC Release Notes.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 (SLES 9) SP1, SP2, SP3
i586 ia64 x86_64 VERITAS Product default smp bigsmp default default smp
Storage Foundation
QuickStart, Standard,
Enterprise, & Enterprise HA
Storage Foundation for DB2

VERITAS Cluster Server
VERITAS Volume Replicator
Storage Foundation Cluster File System (SFCFS)

Storage Foundation for Oracle RAC (SFRAC)
Note SFCFS and SFRAC are supported in 32-bit mode on x86 and x86_64 (EM64T and AMD Opteron) architectures on RHEL 4 only. This is to support SFCFS/SFRAC 4.0 customers running RHEL 3 who are upgrading to RHEL 4 and SFCFS/SFRAC 4.1.
Because there is limited kernel virtual address space on 32-bit kernels, VERITAS strongly recommends running SFCFS and SFRAC on the hugemem kernel when operating in 32-bit mode. See the 4.1 MP2 Storage Foundation Cluster File System Release Notes for more information.
Maintenance Pack 2 is supported on SUSE SP1 (.139, .145 and later), SUSE SP2 (.201 minimum requirement), and SUSE SP3 (.241 and later).

Latest VERITAS Product Information
Before installing any product, read the following VERITAS Technical Support TechNote for information on the latest supported kernels, service pack and errata updates, patches, and software issues regarding this release:
http://support.veritas.com/docs/277033
Software Issues
If you use the up2date command to update a RHEL 4 server, it may fail and display the following error message:
Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
There was a package dependency problem. The message was:
Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
VRTSvcs 4.1.20.00-MP2_RHEL4 requires VRTSperl

The origin of the problem is unknown. To enable the up2datecommand to complete without errors, exclude the Perl package from updating by typing the following command:
# up2date --exclude=perl -u
To prevent a reoccurrence, update the Perl package manually.

Package Installation Script
You install upgrade packages by running the installmp installation script from the command line. The installmp script is at the top level of the 4.1 Maintenance Pack 2 disc. The installmp script checks for any installed VERITAS package and replaces it with the appropriate patch RPM. There is no uninstallation script.
All VERITAS product processes are stopped after running installmp. To ensure that processes restart correctly, a manual restart or system reboot is required. If you want to configure a product, run the product installation scripts from the /opt/VRTS/install directory using the –configure option.
See the individual product release notes for information on how to restart processes, or how to uninstall Maintenance Pack 2 and return to the 4.1 product level.

Mounting the 4.1 Maintenance Pack 2 Software Disc
To load the software from a CD-ROM drive:
1. Log in as superuser.
2. Insert a VERITAS software disc into a drive connected to your system.
3. After inserting the disc, enter: # mount -o ro /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
4. Change to the appropriate directory and product subdirectory to view the product release notes (see “Installing Updates” on page 8).

Installing Updates
After mounting the software disc, change to the directory of the product you want to upgrade and read the product release notes for installation information.
You cannot roll back Maintenance Pack 2 to the previously installed release. To restore release 4.1 on your system, you must completely remove Maintenance Pack 2, then reinstall VERITAS 4.1.
To install a product, you must run the product installation script instead of the generic installer script. For example, if you are installing Storage Foundation software, after mounting the 4.1 VERITAS software disc, go to the distribution/storage_foundation directory and type:
# ./installsf -installonly [-usersh]
The -installonly option is required to perform the installation without configuring the software.
Read the product release notes of the product you want to install for more information.
