FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS INCLUDED IN THIS PATCH: 
---------------------------------------------
Etrack Incidents: 1718459

SDR's of Fixed Symantec Incidents:
--------------------------------
Symantec Incident : 1718459
Symptom:
	When we set an error corresponding to an ORA error in 
	the oraerror.dat file, the agent was not honoring the action. 
	Instead, it was always failing over the resource.
Defect Description:
	This was happening because the function call for parsing 
	the ORA errors and taking the corresponding action was missing.
Resolution:
	We had populated the ORA errors in VCSAgStartUp() function. 
	Once we had these ora errors and its corresponding actions, 
	the agent started performing the corresponding errors.
