 PATCH VCS 5.0RP3 HF1/11iv3 for VCS Bundled Agent 5.0RP3/11iv3
================================================================

 Patch Date:  October, 2009

This README provides information on:
 * BEFORE GETTING STARTED
 * FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS INCLUDED IN THE PATCH
 * PACKAGES AFFECTED BY THE PATCH
 * INSTALLING THE PATCH
 * UNINSTALLING THE PATCH


BEFORE GETTING STARTED:
----------------------
This patch only applies to:
	VRTSvcsag 5.0RP3 running on HP-UX 11i v3

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


FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS INCLUDED IN THE PATCH: 
--------------------------------------------
Etrack Incidents: 1844884, 1867995

SDR's of Fixed Symantec Incidents:
--------------------------------
Symantec Incident : 1844884
Symptom:
	The MultiNICB agent memory consumption keeps on increasing gradually. 
	This can be observed by periodically referring to 'ps -elf' 
	output for the '/opt/VRTSvcs/bin/MultiNICB/MultiNICBAgent' process.
Defect Description:
	This behavior is seen due to memory leak in the MultiNICB agent.
Resolution:
	The memory leak in MultiNICB agent is now fixed.

Symantec Incident : 1867995
Symptom:
	In a configuration where an IP resources's Device name is a
	substring of the MultiNICB resource's Device name, when the
	MultiNICB resource performs an internal failover, the IP
	resource goes offline unexpectedly and faults.
Defect Description:
	The MultiNICB agent logic that searches for the virtual IPs to
	migrate to new active interface was selecting any interfaces
	that matched as a left substring of the failed device name. Due
	to this, the virtual IP monitored by the IP resource was getting
	migrated to the new active interface monitored by the MultiNICB
	resource. This in turn resulted in IP resource going offline
	unexpected and thereby faulting.
Resolution:
	The MultiNICB agent code logic that searches for virtual IPs is 
	updated to migrate only appropriate virtual IPs to new active 
	interface only.


PACKAGES AFFECTED BY THE PATCH:
-------------------------------
This patch updates the following VCS package(s) 
 VRTSvcsag from 5.0RP3 /11i v3 to 5.0RP3HF1 /11i v3

Patch Information:
Patch ID - PVCO_03900
Patch Supersedes - PVCO_03849, PVCO_03853, PVCO_03867, PVCO_03896


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

Stopping VCS on the cluster 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 VRTSvcsag is 5.0RP3 for HP-UX 11i v3.

3. Freeze all the service groups persistently, on all nodes:
	# 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. 

Installing the Patch:
--------------------
1. Un-compress the downloaded patch from Symantec.
   Change directory to the unzipped patch location. 
   Install the VRTSvcsag 5.0RP3HF1/11iv3 (PVCO_03900) 
   patch using the following command:
	# swinstall -s [dir]/patches PVCO_03900

2. Verify that the new patch has been installed:
	# swlist  PVCO_03900
   You will find the following output on display with 
   the patch installed properly:
PVCO_03900    1.0        VRTS 5.0 RP3 HF1 VRTSvcsag Command Patch

Re-starting VCS on the cluster 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:
-----------------------
Follow the steps given below in all the systems:

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

2. Remove the patch by the following command:
	# swremove PVCO_03900

3. Verify that the patch has been removed from the system:
	# swlist  PVCO_03900
   If the patch gets removed successfully, the command will not display 
   any output.

4. Follow the steps in "Re-starting VCS on the cluster node" section above 
   to restart VCS on the node.
