INSTALLING THE PATCH:
--------------------
The following steps should be run on the nodes in the VCS cluster,
where the patch is going to be installed:

Stopping VCS on the cluster node:
--------------------------------
To stop the cluster on all nodes follow the given steps:
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 4.1MP2 or later for Solaris Sparc.

3. Freeze all the service groups persistently:
	# haconf -makerw
	# hagrp -freeze [group] -persistent
	# haconf -dump -makero

3. From any one node, execute the following command to stop the cluster:
	# hastop -all -force

4. Verify that the cluster is stopped on all nodes by running 
   the hasys command:
	# hasys -state

5. On all nodes, make sure that both had and hashadow processes 
   are stopped.

6. Stop the VCS CmdServer on all nodes:
	# CmdServer -stop


Installing the Patch:
--------------------
1. Un-compress the downloaded patch from Symantec.
   Change directory to the unzipped patch location. 
   Install the VRTSvcs 4.1MP2HF1 patch using the following command:
	# patchadd [patch-id]
   Where [patch-id] is either of the following depending on 
   system configuration,
	For SunOS Release 5.8, [patch-id] is 142604-01.
	For SunOS Release 5.9, [patch-id] is 142605-01.
	For SunOS Release 5.10, [patch-id] is 142606-01.

2. Verify that the new patch has been installed:
	# showrev -p | grep [patch-id]
   You will find the following output on display with the patch 
   installed properly:
Patch: [patch-id] Obsoletes:  Requires: [4.1MP2 patch-id] Incompatibles:  
Packages: VRTSvcs


Re-starting VCS on the cluster node:
-----------------------------------
At this time, you can start cluster services on the cluster nodes.
1. On one node, please verify that VCS configuration is valid.
	# hacf -verify /etc/VRTSvcs/conf/config/

2. If the configuration is valid, start VCS:
	# hastart
   On all other nodes, start VCS by issuing hastart(1m) once the first node 
   goes to LOCAL_BUILD or RUNNING state.

3. Unfreeze all the groups:
	# haconf -makerw
	# hagrp -unfreeze [group] -persistent
	# haconf -dump -makero


UNINSTALLING THE PATCH:
-----------------------
Steps to remove the Patch from a cluster node:
---------------------------------------------

   section above, to stop VCS on the node & unload any drivers, as required.

2. Remove the patch by the following command:
	# patchrm [patch-id]
