FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS INCLUDED IN THE PATCH: 
--------------------------------------------
Etrack Incidents: 1780698, 1839222, 1832093, 1718459

SDR's of Fixed Symantec Incidents:
--------------------------------
Symantec Incident : 1780698
Symptom:
	Oracle Agent was not able to send SNMP/SMTP notifications 
	in case of any error defined in oraerror.dat file.
Defect Description:
	There was a problem in forming the hanotify(1m) command 
	in Oracle Agent, while sending notifications.
Resolution:
	The problem is now fixed to correctly form the hanotify(1m) 
	command in Oracle Agent, while sending notifications.

Symantec Incident : 1839222
Symptom:
	Oracle Agent dumping core if large number of oracle processes 
	of an instance are running on the system.
Defect Description:
	The agent was dumping because of a memory leak during the 
	offline monitoring.
Resolution:
	The memory leak is fixed by searching for only those processes 
	that requires offline monitoring.

VRTSvcsor 5.0MP3RP2HF2:
Symantec Incident : 1832093
Symptom:
	VCS Oracle Configuration Wizard displays an exception when "Next"
	button is clicked on "Mount Configuration" page. When user 
	clicks "Next" again following error is displayed:
	    "ERROR: V-16-12-1533 Enter netmask for the IP address."
Defect Description:
	This happens when listener IP is plumbed on a interface
	which has name of format other than "eth*". e.g. If listener IP is
	plumbed on interface bond0:0 then wizard displays these errors.
Resolution:
	This issue in Oracle wizard discovery is fixed by properly
	detecting network interfaces irrespective of their naming convention.

VRTSvcsor 5.0MP3RP2HF1:
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.
