 Patch Date:  July, 2009

This README provides information on:
 * BEFORE GETTING STARTED
 * CRC AND BYTE COUNT
 * FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS INCLUDED IN THIS PATCH
 * PACKAGES AFFECTED BY THIS PATCH
 * INSTALLING THE PATCH(S)
 * UNINSTALLING THE PATCH(S)


BEFORE GETTING STARTED:
----------------------
This patches only applies to:
	VRTSvcsag 5.0MP3RP2 running on RHEL50 for x86_64/i686

Ensure that you are running the supported configurations before
installing this patch.

CRC AND BYTE COUNT:
------------------
Ensure that the patch file you have downloaded matches the following
checksum and byte count, depending on the OS version you are using.

The following command can be used to ascertain this:
For RHEL50 (i686/x86_64):
# cksum VRTSvcsag-5.0.30.24-MP3RP2HF4_RHEL5.i686.rpm
2870772634	491246	VRTSvcsag-5.0.30.24-MP3RP2HF4_RHEL5.i686.rpm


FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS INCLUDED IN THIS PATCH: 
---------------------------------------------
Etrack Incidents: 1730192, 1723347

SDR's of Fixed Symantec Incidents:
---------------------------------
Symantec Incident: 1730192
Symptom:
 	DNS clean never used to succeed.
Defect Description:
	The DNS clean entry point was not parsing the argument 
	list correctly. Hence, it always reported the clean operation 
	as failed. VCS kept on re-attempting clean operation and 
	this sequence never used to end.
Resolution:
	Fixed the clean entry point code to parse the argument 
	list correctly. Now the DNS resource's clean operation 
	should succeed, if there is no fault.

Symantec Incident: 1723347
Symptom:
 	Mount agent returns offline even when the resource is mounted.
Defect Description:
	Mount agent did not support large file systems. Thus statvfs(3P)
	call within large file systems used to fail. Due to this, 
	the monitor entry point used to return offline status.
Resolution:
	Fixed the Mount agent to support large file systems 
	and return correct status.

PACKAGES AFFECTED BY THIS PATCH:
-------------------------------
This patch updates the following VCS packages 
	VRTSvcsag from 5.0MP3RP2 to 5.0MP3RP2HF4


INSTALLING THE PATCH(S):
-----------------------
The following steps should be run on all nodes in the VCS cluster:

Stopping the VCS on a node:
--------------------------
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


Installing Patch(s):
-------------------
Repeat the below steps on all the nodes.
1. Gunzip & untar the downloaded patch from Symantec. 
   Change directory to the unzipped patch location. 
   Install the VRTSvcsag patch using the following command:
	# rpm -Uvh VRTSvcsag-5.0.30.24-MP3RP2HF4_<DIST>.<ARCH>.rpm

   where, DIST is RHEL50 and ARCH is i586/i686.

2. Verify that the new patch has been installed:
	# rpm -q VRTSvcsag
   The following information is displayed after successful patch 
   installation:
	   VRTSvcsag-5.0.30.24-MP3RP2HF4_<DIST>
   where, DIST is RHEL50 .


Re-starting the VCS on a node :
-----------------------------
1. 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.

2. Unfreeze all the groups.
     # haconf -makerw
     # hagrp -unfreeze <group> -persistent
     # haconf -dump -makero


UNINSTALLING THE PATCH(S):
-------------------------
Removal of the patch will result in removing whole package 
from the system/node. To go back to a previous installed version 
of the package, you may need to re-install the package again.
Following steps need to be run on all the VCS cluster node:

Steps to remove the Patch(s) :
-----------------------------
1. Follow the steps provided under "Stopping the VCS on a node" 
   section above, to stop the node.

2. Remove the patch(s) by the following command:
	# rpm -e VRTSvcsag

3. Verify that the package has been removed:
	# rpm -qa | grep VRTSvcsag 
   The package VRTSvcsag should not be displayed, which confirms 
   that the package is removed.

4. Restart the node following the steps under 
   "Re-Starting the VCS on a node" section above.
